Mean, median and mode rhyme

May 19, 2011

My students always struggle to remember the three averages either drawing a blank when asked or mixing them up.  So I found a rhyme on google to help them remember

Hey diddle, diddle, the median’s the middle,

You add then divide for the mean,

The mode is the one that you see the most,

And the range is the difference between.
