This video is an introductory to statistics.  It is set up like a course and a chapter in a math book.  It’s not dull though; it actually begins by teaching the viewer the rationale behind collecting data and the need to analyze that data in terms of statistics.  There are examples, graphs, and diagrams for every concept.  This chapter covers 5 key concepts: statistical concepts, data, collecting data, sample design, and experimental design.

## Finding Mean, Median and Mode

Chapter 3 Data Analysis for class and AIMS
Cindy Schopen Mills's insight:

I really like this video tutorial; it is slow-paced, and it defines each term, with solid examples.  Next, the presenter offers examples, and actually does the math in front of the audience, which is very helpful.  He even predicts what mistake the student might make, and then makes sure that this doesn’t occur.  He demonstrates all of his concepts in a clear, concise manner.
