Choosing the best average

Each of the 3 types of average has a specific use, and should be used for it only.

the mode
The Mode
  • The Mode is used when you want to find things like:
  • What colour do most people like?
  • This is usually the case when you are looking at data which is not numerical, e.g. items (CDs, Shoes, Books)
the median
The Median
  • The Median is used when you want to find a typical value for a data set that is very spread out.
  • E.g. the results for a year 7 form in maths before being set.
  • The Mean
  • The Mean is used when you want to find the typical value for a data set that is NOT that spread out, such as individual maths sets.
