A graph that uses data points to show the relationship between two variables

x-axis: independent variable, horizontal

y-axis: dependent variable, vertical

Determine the quartiles and the median

2nd and 3rd quartiles make up the box, separated into 2 sections by the median

1st and 4th quartiles make up the whiskers

A grouping of data that makes up 25% (a quarter) of a data set

Named 1st, 2nd, 3rd, or 4th

A data point that is very large or very small compared to the rest of the data set

The middle value of a data set when the numbers are arranged from smallest to largest

A type of graph that is useful for showing the range of a data set

Can help determine the difference between a data set that is spread out versus a data set that contains outliers

Box-and-whisker plot

Identify trends, such as most popular item at a store, how that changes from one quarter to another, spending patterns, etc.

Shirts

Pie chart

Stacked bar chart

Also known as a circle graph

Useful for showing parts of a whole

## Flashcard Content Overview

There are many instances where collecting information is important. You may own a business and need to know how your items are selling. You may want to sell your house and want to know what similar houses are going for in your area. You may want to make a budget and need to know how much money you are spending on groceries versus utilities. However, raw numbers can be hard to deal with. To make this data easier to understand, graphs and charts can be used. This set of flashcards will help you review the major types of tables and graphs you may encounter in your everyday life.

A graph that uses data points to show the relationship between two variables

x-axis: independent variable, horizontal

y-axis: dependent variable, vertical

A graph that uses a line to usually show how something changes over time

x-axis: independent variable (usually some measure of time), horizontal

y-axis: dependent variable, vertical

Day 5: 3 inches

Day 6: 2 inches

3 + 2 = 5 inches

This bar chart shows that on day 1, there was 10 inches of snowfall.

This line graph shows that the plant was 4 inches tall on day 7.

A table that shows the frequencies of two different variables, with one variable in the columns and one variable in the rows

This two-way table shows that there are 9 male long jumpers.

A type of graph that shows how many times an event happened, such as how many times the roller coaster was ridden on Saturday or how many times quiz question #1 was answered incorrectly

A table that shows additive frequencies of data from row to row, with each row increasing as it adds the total number of instances that occurred below each interval

28.57%

A table that shows how often a specific event or value occurs

A graph that uses bars to visually show variable frequencies (the data)

Different from bar graph in that the *x* axis is a continuous range instead of categories

A graph that uses bars to visually display data

*x* axis labeled with categories or specific numbers rather than a continuous range of numbers
