Mean, mode and median are the terms of mathematic and also statistics. These are different kinds of average values of a data in consideration. Mean is what most people think of when they hear the word average. Mean could be calculated by dividing the total by number of items. Mode is the number which occurs frequently and median is the middle number when the numbers are arranged in order of size.

A very important objective of statistical analysis is to arrive at one numerical measure-"Measures of central tendency".This central value or average is a measure which condenses a huge unwield set of data into one numerical value which is representative of the entire distribution.MEAN is known as average in layman's language.It is obtained by dividing the total of the observations by the number of items.MEDIAN is the value that item in a series which divides the series into equal parts.MODE is the value of the variable corresponding to the maximum frequency in case of a frequency distribution.

Mathematically speaking - Mean is the average of a set of scores. The median is the middle score, mode is the most frequently occurring value. I am only going from my memory of High School Maths. Hope I'm right. Good luck.
