The median is kind of like the middle number. When you have a set of number you need to sort them from least to greatest, then look for you number that is in the exact middle of them all, that number is your median, if there isn't a number in the exact middle you would add your two middle numbers together, then divide by two and that is your median.

The mode is the number that occurs most, so when you sort your data from least to greatest lets say you have one 13, three 14's, and eight 15's your mode would be 15 seeing as that is the number that occurs the most.
