About This Chapter
HSPT Test: Graphing Data - Chapter Summary
This chapter will take you through how to process and interpret the information and express that information in graphic forms that make sense. The videos cover the following topics that may appear on the HSPT exam:
- Using tables and schedules to organize and interpret data
- Real world applications of graphs and tables
- Understanding line graphs and stem and leaf displays
- Reading and interpreting pie charts and bar graphs
- Working with scatterplots, histograms, and dot and box plots
These well-written, brightly presented videos make review fun and easy. They pack maximum information in the minimum number of minutes, so that your time is used to your best advantage. The mobile nature of our study guide allows you to study from any device that gives you Internet access.
HSPT Test: Graphing Data Chapter Objectives
As part of the admissions process required by select Catholic schools, the HSPT exam is given to students in their eighth grade year. The exam also aids in curriculum placement and scholarship selection procedures. The Graphing Data chapter of our HSPT study guide aligns with the mathematics section of the exam, which is composed of about 64 questions.
The HSPT test measures not only math, but verbal, reading, language and quantitative skills as well. It is comprised of 298 questions, all of which are multiple choice. The exam is given as a paper-and-paper test. You will need to carefully examine each question, review the responses provided and choose the one that best answers the question.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Reading and Interpreting Line Graphs
Watch this video lesson to find out how useful line graphs can be and how much information you can gain just from looking at one. Learn how you can apply that information in your own life to help you make better decisions.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. Creating & Interpreting Scatterplots: Process & Examples
Scatterplots are a great visual representation of two sets of data. In this lesson, you will learn how to interpret bivariate data to create scatterplots and understand the relationship between the two variables.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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!
