Numerical Measures of Central Tendency and Variability

Read sections 2, 4, 8, 12, and 13 from chapter 3. Also, complete the questions at the end of each section. Section 2 defines the concept of central tendency. Section 4 introduces mean, median, and mode in the context of examples. Section 8 further elaborates on median and mean and discusses their strengths and weaknesses in measuring the central tendency. Section 12 addresses the concept of variability. Section 13 discusses range, interquartile range, variance, and the standard deviation.
