Mean - a measure of center in a set of numerical data, computed by adding the values in a list and then dividing by the number of values in the list.
Median - a measure of center in a set of numerical data; the value appearing at the center of a sorted list – or the mean of the two central values if the list contains an even number of values.
Range - the difference between the largest number and the smallest number in a data set. Interquartile Range – a measure of variation in a set of numerical data; the distance between the first and third quartiles of the data set.
Mean Absolute Deviation - a measure of variation in a set of numerical data; computed by adding the distances between each data value and the mean, then dividing by the number of data values.
Outlier - a value that lies “outside" (is much smaller or larger than) most of the other values in a set of data.
Relative frequency - the ratio of the number of times an event occurs to the number of occasions on which it might occur in the same period.
Sample Space - all of the possible outcomes
