Remembering which is Mean, Mode and Median.

mean, mode, median

Memory aids are particularly helpful when we need to recall a definition rather than understand a concept. For example, to remember the difference between the mean, the mode and the median in statistics I use the following which is suitable for using with flash cards. It may not appeal to everyone, but it works for me. Another way to remember that the median is the middle number of a list of numbers organised in ascending or descending order is to recall that on a roadway the “median strip” is a paved or landscaped strip set in the middle of a road to separate opposing lanes of traffic.
