Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

What’s the meaning of a mean - and a median, a mode, and a range? In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby help you identify the differences between these categories that describe trends for a set of numbers. First you’ll learn how to add up a set of numbers to figure out the mean. You’ll also learn about range, a way to express the extremes of a number list. If you sort the list of numbers in order, you’ll be able to identify the median, too. Finally, Tim will show you how to compare the numbers in a list to determine what the mode is. This movie will really - we mean really - help you out!
