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.

Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables & Schedules

2. 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

3. 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.

Frequency & Relative Frequency Tables: Definition & Examples

4. 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.

Cumulative Frequency Tables: Definition, Uses & Examples

5. 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.

Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays

6. 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.

Creating & Interpreting Histograms: Process & Examples

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.

Creating & Interpreting Dot Plots: Process & Examples

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.

Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples

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!

Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

10. 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.

Making Arguments & Predictions from Univariate Data

11. Making Arguments & Predictions from Univariate Data

Univariate data is used to describe a situation or experiment; however, you can also use the data to make arguments and predictions. This lesson will show you how to use measures of central tendency to make arguments and predictions.
