About This Chapter

The Washington Educator Skills Test (WEST) is now the National Evaluation Series examination. Explore this chapter's video lessons to strengthen your knowledge of frequency tables, box plots and bar graphs as you prepare to pass this test.

WEST Math: Tables, Plots & Graphs - Chapter Summary

Utilize the online video lessons in this chapter to refresh your memory of the process of creating frequency tables and dot plots. Then, practice interpreting polygons and histograms. By reviewing these and other concepts in this chapter, you'll prepare to answer related questions on the WEST Math examination. This chapter could help you with:

  • Visualizing data by using frequency and relative frequency tables
  • Analyzing information with the help of cumulative frequency tables, and reading stem leaf displays
  • Reviewing the steps for creating histograms and frequency polygons
  • Using dot plots and box plots for data analysis
  • Recording data in bar graphs and pie charts
  • Understanding and finding uses for bivariate data

The animated video lessons are entertaining as well as educational. You can submit any of your questions on tables, plots and graphs to the knowledgeable instructors, and study at a pace that is appropriate for you. The lessons are accompanied by written transcripts. Use the self-assessment quizzes to test your retention of this material and your readiness for the WEST Math examination.

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.
