In this interactive, estimate which troll is of median height and then arrange the trolls in height order to verify your estimation. Then, look at the heights as measured in inches, arrange them, find the median, and find the mode. In the accompanying classroom activity, students apply the same ideas from the game but instead of using heights, they use sets of numbers compiled from rolling dice. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
