1. Creating & Reading Stem & Leaf Displays
Creating and reading stem-and-leaf displays are relevant to understanding how to interpret visual data sets. Learn to identify what a stem-and-leaf display is and why it is useful.
2. Creating & Interpreting Histograms: Process & Examples
A histogram is a diagram that provides a graphical picture of the points in a data set. Learn about creating and interpreting histograms by exploring the process and examples. Understand the purpose of histograms, practice interpreting a histogram, and recognize when data is skewed and what this means.
3. Creating & Interpreting Box Plots: Process & Examples
A box plot is an essential tool to help with statistical analysis by using both graphs and number lines to assist in visualizing the data. Discover how to create and interpret box plots by learning each separate element in the process and work through real-world examples.
4. Measures of Central Tendency: Definitions & Practice
A central tendency is much better known by its far more commonly used synonym, average. Explore the meaning of the terms central tendency, mode, mean and median, learn to calculate these three values from provided data, and then take a short quiz.
5. Normal Distribution: Definition, Properties, Characteristics & Example
A normal distribution is a probability distribution characterized by a bell-shaped curve. Learn about the definition, properties, characteristics, and examples of normal distribution, and discover the empirical rule for normally distributed data.
6. Calculating the Standard Deviation
Standard deviation helps determine if a set of data is normally distributed by measuring how closely the data set surrounds the mean, or average. Learn about standard deviation, including the steps to calculate it. Explore variance, review examples of calculations, and understand what standard deviation means in regard to a data set.
