Ch 52: NES Math: Tables, Plots & Graphs

About This Chapter

Let us help you refresh your knowledge of how to create and analyze various kinds of tables, plots and graphs as you study for the NES Math test. We offer a variety of tools to aid in your test preparation.

NES Math: Tables, Plots & Graphs - Chapter Summary

These video lessons provide a review of several types of tables, plots and graphs, and they demonstrate ways of creating and interpreting them. After completing this chapter, you'll be better prepared to answer NES Math test questions on:

  • Frequency and relative frequency tables
  • Stem and leaf displays
  • Histograms
  • Frequency polygons
  • Dot and box plots
  • Bar graphs and pie charts
  • Bivariate data

Humor, real-world examples and animations make our lessons a fun way to prepare for the NES Math test. These videos average about five minutes in length, and you can watch them on computer, smartphone or tablet, from anywhere you have access to the Internet. Every lesson includes a short multiple-choice quiz, and the video provides a clickable Timeline that makes it easy to return to specific parts of the lesson.

NES Math: Tables, Plots & Graphs Chapter Objectives

Five states have made passing the NES Math test one of their requirements for obtaining certification to teach secondary-level mathematics. The test is administered by computer, and all its questions are multiple-choice, as are our lesson quizzes and the chapter exam. In addition to letting you evaluate your knowledge, these tests offer practice in answering questions in the format that the NES Math test uses.

The NES Math test has five content domains, and questions involving the material taught in this chapter are in the Statistics, Probability and Discrete Mathematics content domain. This content domain makes up 19% of the total scoring.

Frequency & Relative Frequency Tables: Definition & Examples

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.

Cumulative Frequency Tables: Definition, Uses & Examples

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.

Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays

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.

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 Frequency Polygons: Process & Examples

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.

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.

Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples

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!

Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

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.

What is Bivariate Data? - Definition & Examples

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.
