About This Chapter
GACE Math: Tables & Plots - Chapter Summary
As part of a preparation course for the GACE Mathematics assessment, the material of this chapter has been assembled to aid in your review of frequency tables, stem and leaf displays, histograms and other visual representations of frequency. Watch these lesson videos of expert instructors to prepare for exam questions on:
- Frequency and relative frequency tables
- Cumulative frequency tables
- Stem and leaf displays
- Frequency polygons
- Dot plots and box plots
- Bar graphs and pie charts
- Bivariate data
Along with watching these lesson videos, you can improve your abilities working with visual displays of frequency by completing lesson worksheets and quizzes. Use the results from your lesson quizzes to find areas of weakness and then organize a review of these topics with video tags that will take you directly to key topics of the video lessons. For an alternative way of reviewing the material of this chapter, read over the lesson transcripts that present the same information in a written format.
1. Frequency & Relative Frequency Tables: Definition & Examples
Frequency and relative frequency tables are a good way to visualize information. This is especially useful for information that is grouped into categories where you are looking for popularity or mode.
2. Cumulative Frequency Tables: Definition, Uses & Examples
Cumulative frequency tables can help you analyze and understand large amounts of information. In this lesson, you practice creating and interpreting cumulative frequency tables.
3. Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays
Every once in a while you will come across stem-and-leaf displays in statistics. These displays can be very useful in identifying all of the values in a data set while still visually representing the data.
4. Creating & Interpreting Histograms: Process & Examples
Creating histograms can help you easily identify and interpret data. This lesson will give you several examples to better understand histograms and how to create them.
5. Creating & Interpreting Frequency Polygons: Process & Examples
Frequency polygons can be used to analyze data sets in many different ways. They are also a great way to visualize and compare two sets of data. In this lesson, learn the uses and create a frequency polygon.
6. Creating & Interpreting Dot Plots: Process & Examples
Dot plots are a visual way to display the frequency distribution in a data set. In this lesson, you will learn how to construct a dot plot and understand its uses.
7. Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples
Box plots are an essential tool in statistical analysis. This lesson will help you create a box plot and understand its meaning. When you are finished, test your understanding with a short quiz!
8. Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts
In this lesson, we will examine two of the most widely used types of graphs: bar graphs and pie charts. These two graphs can provide the reader with a comparison of the different data that is displayed.
9. What is Bivariate Data? - Definition & Examples
In this lesson, you will be learning about the definition and uses of bivariate data. We will also compare and contrast the characteristics of univariate data and bivariate data.
