NOTES… the following methods.

  • Stem plots can show data in the order they were recorded or in numerical order (both are ok)

  • Dots can be used to split large leaves into more manageable groups

  • Outliers are not just at extremes, but must also be away from the cluster of other values

“Coding” the following methods.

  • Data involving decimals or negative numbers can be changed to positive whole numbers by “coding” the data

    • 1.001, 0.079, 0.167

    • Multiply all by 1000

  • Negative numbers can be coded by adding a large number to all data values to make them positive

§1.5: Histograms the following methods.

LEQ: How do you read and interpret histograms?

What is a histogram?

Frequency histogram –

Organizes data into groups by frequency

Relative Frequency histogram –

Organizes data into groups by percent values

Drawing a histogram
Drawing a histogram the following methods.

  • Organize the data into non-overlapping intervals of EQUAL WIDTH

  • Count number of observations per interval & record results in a frequency table

  • Draw the histogram

    • Mark endpoints of intervals on horizontal axis

    • Mark frequencies on vertical axis

    • No space should be between horizontal groups (because histograms often represent continuous variables)

What a histogram tells you
What a histogram tells you the following methods.

  • Information about spread

  • Shows clusters

  • A skewed histogram has more data to the left or right

  • Poor choice of intervals can make a histogram difficult to interpret

  • Histograms can be distorted if intervals are not of equal width

  • Too few intervals will lump data together

Standard deviation
Standard Deviation the following methods.

Four students had summer jobs at a camp last year. Four other students had jobs at a nursing home. Their weekly pay is listed.

Camp Nursing Home

$150 $140

$160 $190

$220 $210

$270 $260

Calculate the mean for the pay in each location.

  • Find the deviation from the mean by subtracting the mean from the salary value.

  • Complete column 4 by squaring each value in column 3.

  • Complete a table like the one above for the nursing home workers.

  • Compare the deviations from the mean at the two locations.

    At which location does the pay vary more?

Standard deviation shows how a set of data is spread out. from the salary value.

Small standard deviation means that everything is right around the mean.

Large standard deviation means that everything is more spread out.

Eight steps for standard deviation
Eight Steps for Standard Deviation from the salary value.

  • Find the mean of the data. X

  • Find the difference (deviation) of each data value from the mean

  • Calculate the square of each deviation

  • Find the sum of the squares of the deviations

  • Divide the sum by the number of data values minus 1 (n – 1).

  • This is the variance.

  • Take the square root of the variance.

  • This is the standard deviation.
