Measures of Central Tendency Jan Sands 2007 Mean, Median, Mode, Range

Definition of Mean Mean Means Average

Definition of Mean Mean – the average of a group of numbers. 2, 5, 2, 1, 5 Mean = 3

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

How to Find the Mean of a Group of Numbers Step 1 – Add all the numbers. 2, 5, 2, 1, 5 2+ 5+ 2+ 1+ 5 = 15

How to Find the Mean of a Group of Numbers Step 2 – Divide the sum by the number of items. 2, 5, 2, 1, 5 How many total items are there?

How to Find the Mean of a Group of Numbers Step 2 – Divide the sum by the number of items. sum 15 ÷ 5 = 3 number of items mean

Find the Mean of a Group of Numbers The mean or average of these numbers is 3. 2, 5, 2, 1, 5

What is the mean of these numbers? 7, 10, 16 The mean is 11.

What is the mean of these numbers? 2, 9, 14, 27 The mean is 13.

What is the mean of these numbers? 1, 2, 7, 11, 19 The mean is 8.

What is the mean of these numbers? 26, 33, 41, 52 The mean is 38.

Definition of Median Median is in the Middle

Definition of Median Median – the middle number in a set of ordered numbers. 1, 3, 7, 10, 13 The median is 7.

How to Find the Median in a Group of Numbers Step 1 – Arrange the numbers in order from least to greatest. 21, 18, 24, 19, 27 18, 19, 21, 24, 27

How to Find the Median in a Group of Numbers Step 2 – Find the middle number. 18, 19, 21, 24, 27 21 is the median number.

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

What is the median of these numbers? 29, 8, 4, 11, 19 The median number is 11. 4, 8, 11, 19, 29

How to Find the Median in a Group of Numbers Step 3 – If there are two middle numbers, find the mean of these two numbers. 18, 19, 21, 25, 27, 29

How to Find the Median in a Group of Numbers Step 3 – If there are two middle numbers, find the mean of these two numbers. 21+ 25 =46 median 46 ÷ 2 = 23

What is the median of these numbers? 31, 7, 2, 12, 14, 19 2, 7, 12, 14, 19, 31 First Step 12 + 14 = 26 Second Step 26 ÷ 2 = 13 The median is 13.

What is the median of these numbers? 53, 5, 81, 67, 25, 78 5, 25, 53, 67, 78, 81 First Step 53 + 67 = 120 Second Step 120 ÷ 2 = 60 The median is 60.

Definition of Mode Mode is the most Popular

Definition of Mode Mode – the number that appears most frequently in a set of numbers. 1, 1, 3, 7, 10, 13 The mode is 1.

How to Find the Mode in a Group of Numbers Step 1 – Arrange the numbers in order from least to greatest. 21, 18, 24, 19, 18 18, 18, 19, 21, 24

How to Find the Mode in a Group of Numbers Step 2 – Find the number that is repeated the most. 18, 18, 19, 21, 24 The mode is 18.

Which number is the mode? 29, 8, 4, 8, 19 The mode is 8. 4, 8, 8, 19, 29

Which number is the mode? 1, 2, 2, 9, 9, 4, 9, 10 The mode is 9. 1, 2, 2, 4, 9, 9, 9, 10

Which number is the mode? 22, 21, 27, 31, 21, 32 The mode is 21. 21, 21, 22, 27, 31, 32

Which number is the mode? 52, 21, 37, 31, 28, 42 There is no mode. 21, 28, 31, 37, 42, 52

Which number is the mode? 23, 25, 21, 31, 21, 25 There are two modes: 21 and 25. 21, 21, 23, 25, 25, 31

Definition of Range Range is the distance between the least and greatest values in a set of numbers.

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

How to Find the Range in a Group of Numbers Step 1 – Arrange the numbers in order from least to greatest. 21, 18, 24, 19, 27 18, 19, 21, 24, 27
