The daily low temperatures during one week were reordered as follows: 2 degrees F, -7 degrees F, 6 degrees F, -3 degrees F, -14 degrees F, -16 degrees F, and -10 degrees F. Explain how you would show a child how to find the average daily low temperature for week.

1. It's the same as finding the average of any set of numbers.

Add up the values and divide by how many there are.

(2 + -7 + 6 + -3 + -14 + -16+ -10)/7 = -42/7 = -6

The child had better be familiar with the concept of negative values, as well as division.
