Teaching averages, on the fly

The head teacher told me that I was supposed to be “reviewing” mean, median, mode, and range with a student who had failed his tests. But the student didn’t seem to have a memory of any of these terms. So this was my attempt to help him remember that mean is almost the same as average. Not sure if he understood, but he did like Boxbert.
