Hi, I'm Rachel, and today we're going to be going over how to find the mean in 6th grade. As you know, the mean is the average of the numbers. So you can find that by adding up all the numbers that are there and then dividing it by the number of numbers. I like to give the kids fun activities, spicing it up a little. So you can have them do something like you know, what's their birthday, either their month or their date of birth and then you know, have all the kids write that down and then figure out what the mean is, the average, by adding it all up and then dividing it by how many students there area. You can also have them do, you know how many pets everyone has or what the street address is that they live on, fun things like that that are also kind of like get to know you games. You know, get them up out on their feet moving around but also they will be learning what the mean is, they will get it in their head that it's the average and hopefully that will stick with them and they'll remember how to do it. I'm Rachel and thank you for learning with us today.
