The median is the middle value if you sort a bunch of numbers from least to greatest.  If you have a class full of students and you line all of the students up from shortest to tallest, the median height is the height of the student in the middle of the line.

The range of a list of numbers is the greatest number minus the smallest number.  In the example above that would be the height of the tallest student minus the height of the shortest student.
