The mean, median and mode are all part of the basics concepts of statistics. Many students tend to confuse the respective terms so I thought I would speak on it with this post. The mean is just the average of a series of numbers- just add up all the numbers and divide by the “number” of numbers in the series.

The median is just the middle number when the series of numbers are in increasing order. Lastly the mode is the number in the series that appears the most. Here is a quick example to review the concepts- enjoy!
