Mean, Median, Mode, and Range

A list of numbers can tell you a whole lot of things, if you know how to look at it! In this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby teach you how to analyze data using mean, median, mode and range. First, you'll learn how simple subtraction can calculate range. Next, Tim talks you through figuring out the mean, or average, which is useful for everything from test scores to sports statistics. Then find the mode by looking for repeated numerals! Finally, you'll discover how the median truly is the middle of the road, number-wise. Add them all up, and you'll learn a lot. We really mean it!
