Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

Mean is found by evening out the numbers
2, 5, 2, 1, 5

Mean is found by evening out the numbers
2, 5, 2, 1, 5

Mean is found by evening out the numbers
2, 5, 2, 1, 5 mean = 3

Mean is the average of a set of data
Mean is the average of a set of data. To calculate the mean, find the sum of the data and then divide by the number of data.

Mean 12, 15, 11, 11, 7, 12 First, find the sum of the data. = 68 Then divide by the number of data. 68 / 6 = 12 The mean is 12

You can remember that “mean” means to average because the “mean teacher averages your grade.”

Reorder from least to greatest
What is the median? The middle number in the set of data when written “in order” (first step we do) Given: 14, 28, 0, 1, 1 Reorder from least to greatest 0, 1, 1, 14, 28 The middle number is 1

Divide by 2. What is your median?
What if you have an even set of numbers? Given: 10, 0, 20, 30 Reorder from least to greatest 0, 10, 20, 30 Add the two middle numbers together. Divide by 2. What is your median? 15

Definition Median is in the Middle

What is the median of these numbers?
16, 10, 7 7, 10, 16 10

Mode Mode: the number that appears the most often.
A family has children aged 3, 4, 5, 3, 1. 3 appears twice, the other numbers only once. 3 is the mode.

What is the mode? 1, 1, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4 There is NO mode

Can there be more than one mode?
1, 2, 2, 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4 Yes, there are two modes. What are they? 2 and 4

You can remember that mode means the number that occurs the most because “mode” and “most” sound alike!

Range – the difference between the greatest and the least value in a set of numbers.
1, 1, 3, 7, 10, 13 Range = 12

Range = 29 First put the numbers in order from smallest to greatest.
40, 30, 43, 48, 26, 47, and 50 To find the range you would take the largest number, 50, and subtract the smallest number, 26. 55 – 26 = 29 Range = 29

Did You Know… That you probably use statistics such as mean, median, mode and range almost every day without even realizing it?!?
