VCE Further Maths

Chapter Two-Bivariate Data

\\Servernas\Year 12\Staff Year 12\LI Further Maths


Vce further maths

  • Looking at the relationship of two variables.

  • Dependent variable (y)

  • Independent variable (x)

  • In a relationship, the variable that “depend” on the other is referred as the dependent variable.

  • On a graph, the independent variable on the horizontal axis and the dependent on the vertical axis.

  • Back-to-back stem plots

    • Same process as constructing a single stem plot

    • This is used to display relationship between a numerical and a categorical variable with two categories

    • Together with summary statistics, back-to-back stem plots can be used for comparing two distributions


Vce further maths

  • Use graphics calculator to generate:

    • The mean and the median

    • The interquartile range

    • The standard deviation

  • Commenting on the relationship

    • The shape (symmetric or skewed)

    • The mean and median (which one is a better measure)

    • The interquartile range (the spread)

    • Overall comment

  • Parallel Boxplots

    • To display a relationship between a numerical variable and categorical variable with more than two categories.

    • Same process as constructing a single boxplot, except that they share a common scale.

    • Comparing distributions of a number of boxplots.

The median height increases from Year 9 to Year 11. There is greater variation in 9A’s distribution than in 10A’s. There is a wide range of heights in the lower 25% of the distribution of 9A’s distribution. There is a greater variation in 11A’s distribution than in 10A’s, with a wide range of heights in the top 25% of the 11A distribution.


Two way frequency tables

Two-way frequency tables

  • To display the relationship between two categorical variables.

  • The figures in the table is expressed as percentages.

  • Generally, if the independent variable is placed in the columns of the table, then the percentages should be calculated in columns.

Example: In a survey, 139 women and 102 men were asked whether they approved or disapproved of a proposed freeway. Thirty-seven women and 79 men approved of the freeway. Display these data in a two-way table (not as percentages).


Segmented bar charts

Segmented bar charts

  • Segmented bar charts are also useful to display relationship between two categorical variables.

  • Same process as discussed in chapter One, where figures are converted in percentages.
