“Andrew!” you may say…”I thought you were going to start posting more regularly? You said so yourself. You broke your resolution!” Ode to my favorite high school teacher here: There’s a method to my madness (incidentally he was not a math teacher. go figure). Anywho, I made a conscious effort to not post until today. I only had 6 posts in June. For a 30 day month, so I only posted once every 5 days, on average. Well, you can figure out where my brain was going with this (if not, email me or leave a comment). Blogging and measures of central tendency. Can I post every day from here on out and truly say it was “more regular” than in June? Can I post 7 times today and say it? Why should we have mean, median, and mode? Is there a connection between them and my rambling? I think so, but let me know if I’m off base.
If I asked for pie a la median for dessert, do you think they’d make extra effort to put the ice cream in the middle?
