Measures of Central Tendency
Median
Mode
Central Tendency
refers to the numerical value in the central region of a distribution of scores.
Mean (Commonly called Average)
The sum of all numbers divided by
n.
Example:
Given the set of numbers: 2, 7, 5, 10, 4, find the mean.

(2+4+5+7+10)

5
= 5.6
Median
The middle value when the data is arranged in numerical order.
Example:
Given the set of numbers: 2, 7, 5, 10, 4, find the median.

2 4 5 7 10
Mode
The value that appears the most.
A set of data can have more than one mode.
If all the numbers appear the same number of times, there is no mode for that data.
Example:
Given the set of numbers: 2, 7, 5, 10, 4, find the mode.

2 4 5 7 10 = No mode.
Example:
1, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 6, 6, 6, 9

The mode here is 3 and 6.

What will be the average of a student if his grades are : 93, 95, 89, 90, 96?
93 + 95 + 89 + 90 + 96

Sum of the product of frequency and score
Total frequency
A class of 25 students took a science test. 10 students got a score of 80; 5 students got a score of 87; 4 students scored 76 and 6 students scored 64. Calculate the mean.
