Statistics - Oreo Stacking Contest for Mean, Median and Mode

On Friday we had fun doing our statistics investigation. The students were in teams and they had to try and make the tallest Oreo tower.  They collected data on how tall their towers were and then we decided on the best way to organise the data.  The class thought that a stem and leaf graph was the best way to present our data.  
Next week we will use our data to practise data management, like mean, median, mode, and range. We will also make a line graph!

The basic rules are that they can't hold it to make it stay up while they are stacking and once one Oreo falls they have to start over.  We did have a bonus round though, where towers could be stabilised during building. 

Here are some fun pictures of the students making their towers..
