Abstract [en]

This paper examines the conceptions of mean, median and mode expressed by prospective teachers. A constant comparative method was used to analyse responses to a questionnaire. The results identified prospective teachers to express procedural knowledge rather than conceptual knowledge. Their descriptions resonate with definitions of the averages, with very few comments on how to teach average and statistical literacy. The results of this research have implications to inform essential course content in teaching statistics on teacher education programmes in the future.
