What is Quantitative Data? - Definition & Examples

1. What is Quantitative Data? - Definition & Examples

Watch this video lesson to find out the difference between saying you have seven apples and saying that those apples are delicious. You will learn about quantitative data and why it is useful.

What is a Histogram in Math? - Definition & Examples

2. What is a Histogram in Math? - Definition & Examples

Watch this video lesson to see how useful a histogram can be when you need to show a bunch of data in an easy to read format. Also, learn how you can easily gather the information you need from looking at a histogram.

Reading and Interpreting Line Graphs

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.

Creating & Interpreting Histograms: Process & Examples

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.

Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples

5. 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!

Creating & Interpreting Dot Plots: Process & Examples

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.

Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

7. 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.

Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays

8. 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.

Circle Graph: Definition & Examples

9. Circle Graph: Definition & Examples

A circle graph is a circular chart divided into sections that each represent a percentage of the total. This lesson will define a circle graph and give some examples of types of circle graphs.

Bar Graph: Definition, Types & Examples

10. Bar Graph: Definition, Types & Examples

A bar graph is a mathematical representation of data. In this lesson, you will learn the definition of a bar graph, including how to recognize the different types of bar graphs. You will also learn how to create bar graphs.

Double Bar Graph: Definition & Examples

11. Double Bar Graph: Definition & Examples

We will explore the function and examples of a double bar graph. Also in this lesson you will learn to create questions and interpret data from a double bar graph.

Double Line Graph: Definition & Examples

12. Double Line Graph: Definition & Examples

We will explore the function and examples of a double line graph. In this lesson, you will also learn to create questions and interpret data from a double line graph.
