Frequency Tables and Line Plots
In this lesson you will learn how to:
- Make a frequency table to organize and display given data.
- Make a line plot given a frequency table.
- Make a frequency table and line plot given unorganized data.
- Collect, organize, display and analyze real-world data using frequency tables and line plots
- how often something occurs
- information about something or someone-usually in number form
- to look at data and draw conclusions based on patterns or numbers
- Frequency table
- a table or chart that shows how often something occurs
- Line plot
- Data that shows frequency by graphing data over a number line
- Organized data
- Data that is listed in numerical order
- Bar graph
- a way to organize data using bars and two axes. One axis represents the number of each item and the other axis represents the item that was counted.
- Double Bar Graph
- A graph that has two bars for each item counted. It still uses a scale, but is designed to compare the data collected during two different times or events. A double bar graph is a tool for comparisons.
