mode
The mode is the value that appears most often in a set of data
Got it
median
The median is the value separating the higher half of a data sample, a population, or a probability distribution, from the lower half
Got it
mean
In mathematics, mean has several different definitions depending on the context
Got it
histogram
A histogram is a graphical representation of the distribution of numerical data
Got it
continuous
In mathematics, a continuous function is, roughly speaking, a function for which sufficiently small changes in the input result in arbitrarily small changes in the output
Got it
contingency table
In statistics, a contingency table is a type of table in a matrix format that displays the frequency distribution of the variables
Got it
frequency
Frequency is the number of occurrences of a repeating event per unit time

outlier
In statistics, an outlier is an observation point that is distant from other observations
range
In arithmetic, the range of a set of data is the difference between the largest and smallest values
scatter plot
A scatter plot is a type of plot or mathematical diagram using Cartesian coordinates to display values for typically two variables for a set of data
line graph
In the mathematical discipline of graph theory, the line graph of an undirected graph G is another graph L that represents the adjacencies between edges of G
pie chart
A pie chart is a circular statistical graphic, which is divided into slices to illustrate numerical proportion
cumulative frequency
Cumulative frequency analysis is the analysis of the frequency of occurrence of values of a phenomenon less than a reference value
Quantitative data
In natural sciences and social sciences, quantitative research is the systematic empirical investigation of observable phenomena via statistical, mathematical or computational techniques
bimodal
In statistics, a bimodal distribution is a continuous probability distribution with two different modes
