Bar charts can be used to display categorical or non-numerical data.

Bar charts for categorical data

For example, this bar graph shows how a group of children travel to school.

Bar charts can be used to display discrete numerical data.

Bar charts for discrete data

For example, this bar graph shows the number of CDs bought by a group of children in a given month.

Bar charts can be used to display grouped discrete data.

Bar charts for grouped discrete data

For example, this bar graph shows the number of books read by a sample of people over the space of a year.

Two or more sets of data can be shown on a bar chart.

Bar charts for two sets of data

For example, this bar chart shows favourite subjects for a group of boys and girls.

Bar line graphs are the same as bar charts except that lines are drawn instead of bars.

Bar line graphs

For example, this bar line graph shows a set of test results.

Give the bar chart a title.

Use equal intervals on the axes.

Label both the axes.

Leave a gap between each bar.

Pie charts

A pie chart is a circle divided up into sectors which are

representative of the data.

In a pie chart, each category is shown as a fraction of the circle.

For example, in a survey half the people asked drove to work, a quarter walked and a quarter went by bus.

This pie chart shows the distribution of drinks sold in a cafeteria on a particular day.

Altogether 300 drinks were sold.

Pie charts

These two pie charts compare the proportions of boys and girls in two classes.

Dawn says, “There are more girls in Mrs Payne’s class than in Mr Humphry’s class.” Is she right?

Drawing pie charts

To draw a pie chart you need a compass and a protractor.

The first step is to work out the angle needed to represent each category in the pie chart.

There are two ways to do this.

The first is to work out how many degrees are needed to represent each person or thing in the sample.

The second method is to work out what fraction of the total we want to represent and multiply this by 360 degrees.

Drawing pie charts

For example, 30 people were asked which newspapers they read regularly.

The results were :

Total

Method 1

Drawing pie charts

There are 30 people in the survey and 360º in a full pie chart.

Each person is therefore represented by 360º ÷ 30 = 12º

We can now calculate the angle for each category:

96º

8 × 12º

84º

7 × 12º

36º

3 × 12º

72º

6 × 12º

Method 2

Drawing pie charts

Write each category as a fraction of the whole and find this fraction of 360º.

8 out of the 30 people in the survey read The Guardian so to work out the size of the sector we calculate

Start by drawing a circle using a compass.

Do tall people weigh more than small people?

If there is more rain, will it be colder?

If you revise longer, will you get better marks?

Do second-hand car get cheaper with age?

Is more electricity used in cold weather?

Are people with big heads better at maths?

We can use scatter graphs to find out if there is any relationship or correlation between two sets of data.

Scatter graphs and correlation

For example,

Length of spring (cm)

Mass attached to spring (g)

When one variable increases as the other variable increases, we have a positive correlation.

Scatter graphs and correlation

For example, this scatter graph shows that there is a strong positive correlation between the length of a spring and the mass of an object attached to it.

The points lie close to an upward sloping line.

This is the line of best fit.

Science score

Maths score

Sometimes the points in the graph are more scattered. We can still see a trend upwards.

Scatter graphs and correlation

This scatter graph shows that there is a weak positive correlation between scores in a maths test and scores in a science test.

The points are scattered above and below a line of best fit.

Temperature(°C)

Rainfall (mm)

When one variable decreases as the other variable increases, we have a negative correlation.

Scatter graphs and correlation

For example, this scatter graph shows that there is a strong negative correlation between rainfall and hours of sunshine.

The points lie close to a downward sloping line of best fit.

Outdoor temperature (ºC)

Electricity used (kWh)

Scatter graphs and correlation

Sometimes the points in the graph are more scattered.

We can still see a trend downwards.

For example, this scatter graph shows that there is a weak negative correlation between the temperature and the amount of electricity a family used.

Number of hours worked

Age (years)

Sometimes a scatter graph shows that there is no correlation between two variables.

Scatter graphs and correlation

For example, this scatter graph shows that there is a no correlation between a person’s age and the number of hours they work a week.

The points are randomly distributed.

Comparing distributions

The distribution of a set of data describes how the data is spread out.

Two distributions can be compared using one of the three averages and the range.

For example, the number of cars sold by two salesmen each day for a week is shown below.

Who is the better salesman?

3 + 6 + 4 + 8 + 12 + 9 + 8

5 + 7 + 6 + 5 + 7 + 8 + 6

Comparing distributions

To decide which salesman is best let’s compare the mean number cars sold by each one.

Matt:

Mean =

= 6.3 (to 1 d.p.)

Jamie:

Mean =

= 7.1 (to 1 d.p.)

This tells us that, on average, Jamie sold more cars each day.

Comparing distributions

Now let’s compare the range for each salesman.

Matt:

Range =

8 – 5 =

3

Jamie:

Range =

12 – 3 =

9

The range for the number of cars sold each day is smaller for Matt. This means that he is a more consistent or reliable salesman.

We could argue that Jamie is better because he sells more on average, or that Matt is better because he is more consistent.

This distribution is skewed to the left.

This distribution is symmetrical (or normal).

This distribution is skewed to the right.

This distribution is random.

Comparing the shape of distributions

We can comparing distributions by looking at the shape of their graphs.

Four groups of pupils sat the same maths test. These graphs show the results.

Comparing the shape of distributions

One of the groups is a top set, one is a middle set, one is a bottom set and one is a mixed ability group.

Use the shapes of the distribution to decide which group is which giving reasons for your choice.
