Practice with Bar Graphs

2. Practice with Bar Graphs

Bar graphs tell you how much you have of different things, but that's not all they can tell you! In this lesson, we'll practice reading and analyzing bar graphs, and we'll also learn how to use them to compare amounts.

Creating a Bar Graph After Gathering Data

3. Creating a Bar Graph After Gathering Data

This lesson will show you how to create a bar graph from data you have collected. You will choose what information to compare, draw and label the parts of the graph, and give it an informative title.

Reading & Interpreting Stem-and-Leaf Plots

4. Reading & Interpreting Stem-and-Leaf Plots

Stem-and-leaf plots? No, we are not going to study plants. In this lesson, you will learn what a stem-and-leaf plot is, how to read one, and how to interpret it. You will become a pro in no time!

Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables & Schedules

5. Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables & Schedules

In math, when we have to deal with a lot of data, having a visual format to present all the data becomes very useful. Watch this video lesson to learn how you can take advantage of two of these visual formats.

Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

6. Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

We use tables and graphs in algebra as ways to visually show an equation or function. But do we really use these in the real world? Is it that important to learn about tables and graphs? Find out in this video lesson.
