About the Lesson

World sporting competitions generally provide a league table of medals with highest position on the table occupied by the most Gold medals won. Is this a fair comparison? How might these tables look if the table was based on medals per million of population or medals based on a country's economic wealth. The TI-Nspire file includes a wealth of data for students to explore.
