Organizing and Understanding Data with Tables & Schedules

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.

Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World

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.

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 & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays

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.

Understanding Bar Graphs and Pie Charts

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.

Creating & Interpreting Scatterplots: Process & Examples

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.

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!

Read, Interpret & Construct Box-and-Whisker Plots

10. Read, Interpret & Construct Box-and-Whisker Plots

Box-and-whisker plots may be different than the other graphs you've learned about. Instead of showing the quantity of data, they help us figure out how spread out a set of data is. Learn how to make and read one, then test your skills with a short quiz.
