Mathalicious: Wealth of Nations

What does a fair wealth distribution look like?

In the United States, 10% of families own more than 70% of the total wealth. In other places, though, the wealth distributions looks very different…for both good and ill.

Students use mean, median, histograms, and box-and-whisker plots to compare how wealth is distributed in different countries and debate the pros and cons of their ideal distribution.
