Subject: median

In the discussion of the median, maybe it would help students if the median was view as the middle number And... that this then tells us that half the items are higher than that number and half the items are lower. As in Joshua's discussions then half the people would make more and half the people would make less...which might seem a more representative statistic than the average salary beint $44,000.
