Students create an income distribution for a fictitious country to learn about quintiles. The interactive calculates the median and mean incomes as well as the percent distribution of aggregate income received by each quintile. This interactive is for use with Lesson 14, Income Distribution, from High School Economics, 3rd Edition.
