Are you teaching students the concept of averages and looking for "real life" examples?  Check on THE GOODGUIDE.

With GoodGuide, you can:
  • Find better products that are healthy, green, and socially responsible 
  • Search or browse over 145,000 food, toys, personal care and household products to easily learn about the best and worst products in a category 
  • Rely on our scientific expertise and sophisticated rating system to simplify complex and confusing product information 
  • Get mobile advice while shopping in a store by downloading our iPhone app
  • Create and share personalized favorites lists of products that are right for you and you family
Each product comes with 3 ratings which are averaged together for a final rating.  Students could check the averages... are they correct?  Then, you could host your own GoodGuide day.  Let students test products in the classroom and develop their own rating system.  Creative and Critical thinking students will use the rest of their lives.
