PLACE Mathematics: Tables and Plots - Chapter Summary

The lessons in this chapter can help you learn how to prepare tables and plots of data, in preparation for the PLACE Mathematics exam. The videos review different types of tables and plots and how to prepare them, including:

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

Our experienced instructors review all elements of tables and plots, showing you how to use each type effectively in preparation for the test. By having material presented in different ways, learning it becomes simpler and more effective.

Objectives of the PLACE Mathematics: Tables and Plots Chapter

The PLACE Mathematics test is an assessment that evaluates your knowledge of mathematics to help determine your eligibility for a teacher license in the state of Colorado. The topics in this Tables and Plots chapter are part of the Probability and Statistics section of the exam, which makes up 19% of the test. Our self-assessment quizzes that accompany each lesson let you gauge your comprehension and get some experience with the types of questions you'll be asked on the actual exam.

All of the questions on the exam are multiple choice. You will be given a problem or question followed by a series of response possibilities. From these, you need to select the single correct answer.

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.
