Whether you mean mean, mode or median. There's nothing average about this topic. The probability section demonstrates plenty of activities which you don't have to chance you're luck with - they work and they're great!
This graph will support childrens understanding of averages.
It's easy to use - type in the lowest / highest number. Then how many numbers you wish to generate. Ideal for class competitions and lottery style - picking of children to take the guinea pig home. Also works well with probability.
A super visual demonstration which uses height to make the point.
Lovely fact sheets and activities to support this from the BBC.
Great for simulating chance and probability.
Spinners can be selected and then you decide on number of spins. Will support probability lessons.
Guess where the star is hiding. It's in one of the boxes - you have 5 guesses. A nice example of what chance and probability means. We don't like the fact that you can't change the variables, we do love the simplicity and chance to be Noel Edmunds. Deal or no deal watch out!
