The median of a data set is the number that is the middle value of the set. It's easy to find the median if you first put the numbers in order from least to greatest. In this tutorial, see how to find the median of a data set, and see what to do if there are two middle values!
The mode of a data set is the number that occurs most frequently in the set. To easily find the mode, put the numbers in order from least to greatest and count how many times each number occurs.

The mean and median can help you better understand a data set. Check out this real world example involving finding and comparing the mean and median of multiple data sets.
The median is one of many measures of central tendency. Check out this tutorial to learn what the median is and how you can find it!
Finding the mode of a set of data can help you understand the data better. This tutorial introduces you to mode and shows you how to find this helpful measure of central tendency!
When you think of the mean of a data set, think of the word average. 'Mean' and 'average' are the same thing when you're talking about a set of data! This tutorial introduces you to mean and shows you how to find it!
