The mean, median, mode, and range are measurements used to help make sense of a data set. They give different ways of seeing where the data tends. The mean, or average, is a useful way to measure the tendency of a data set when there are no extreme values in the set. When there are extreme values, the median can be more useful, as it is the middle value of a data set, when the set is arranged in ascending order. The mode is the value which occurs most often in the data set, and thus gives the most common value in a data set. The range is the difference between the largest and smallest values in the set, and gives an idea of how spread out the data set is.
