Extended Mathematics 11
Extended Mathematics 11 is a full year course offered at schools across Nova Scotia.
- Sharing Numbers from Francis Su - The teacher selects a number from 1 to 9 and tells 3 students. Each student has to either add 1 or double the number they've been told to get their number. Then each of them tell 3 other people their number, etc. until everyone in the room had a number. Each student estimates the mean and median of the of numbers in the room then writes their number on the board (or submits it electronically) so that the actual mean and median can be calculated. This is a good problem to get folks thinking like data scientists!
