Ch 34: FTCE Math: Data Analysis & Statistics

About This Chapter

With this series of lesson videos, you can study for the FTCE Mathematics exam. Discover how to find measures of central tendency and assess the skewness and spread of a data set.

FTCE Math: Data Analysis & Statistics - Chapter Summary

This series of short, engaging lesson videos will help you prepare for exam questions on the Florida Teacher Certification Examination (FTCE) Mathematics exam that involve measures of central tendency, data set distribution and linear transformations of data sets. Follow along with our professional instructors as they explain how to find and analyze these properties of data sets. After these lessons, you should have a better understanding of:

  • Measures of central tendency including the mean, median and mode
  • How to calculate the range of a data set
  • Measures of dispersion and skewness
  • Different ways of assessing the spread of data
  • The use of linear transformations on data sets

These lessons are mobile-device compatible so that you can watch them even when you are away from your computer. In addition to these lesson videos, this chapter includes a series of transcripts. These written overviews of the lessons reinforce your retention of the information presented. Test your understanding of the material and discover topics you still may want to study further by taking the short quizzes.

What is the Center in a Data Set? - Definition & Options

1. What is the Center in a Data Set? - Definition & Options

Finding the center in a data set can sometimes be a little confusing. This lesson will help you determine the correct method for finding the center in a data set, and when you are finished, test your knowledge with a short quiz!

Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

2. Mean, Median & Mode: Measures of Central Tendency

By describing the data using central tendency, a researcher and reader can understand what the typical score looks like. In this lesson, we will explore in more detail these measures of central tendency and how they relate to samples and populations.

How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

3. How to Calculate Mean, Median, Mode & Range

Measures of central tendency can provide valuable information about a set of data. In this lesson, explore how to calculate the mean, median, mode and range of any given data set.

The Mean vs the Median: Differences & Uses

4. The Mean vs the Median: Differences & Uses

Most people can find the mean and the median of a data set, but do you know when to use the mean and when to use the median to describe the information?

Measures of Dispersion and Skewness

5. Measures of Dispersion and Skewness

Watch this video lesson to learn how you can describe your data using two different statistical characteristics. Learn what it means for your graph to have variability and what it means for your graph to be skewed.

Spread in Data Sets: Definition & Example

6. Spread in Data Sets: Definition & Example

Identifying the spread in data sets is a very important part of statistics. You can do this several ways, but the most common methods are through range, interquartile range, and variance.

The Effect of Linear Transformations on Measures of Center & Spread

7. The Effect of Linear Transformations on Measures of Center & Spread

Linear transformations can be a great way to manipulate and analyze data. This lesson will show you how those transformations affect the center and spread of data.
