    This activity file consists of specific information for educators wanting to teach the concept of Mean Absolute Deviation. The primary goal is to adjust a data set so that the computation involved in finding the MAD is secondary to teaching the concept. Teachers should have a basic level of knowledge of case tables and plots. The case table is used to complete the mathematics involved in computing the MAD. Plots are used to illustrate the calculations (finding the mean of the absolute values of the differences from the mean). The horizontal ruler tool is used to quickly calculate the Mean Absolute Deviation.

    This activity examines three different sets of study time data for 28 students in separate classes. The data in each class is symmetric with one difference. Class one has a uniform distribution, class two is mound shaped and class three is U shaped. The goal is to explore the variability of the three distributions noting the effect of the shape.
