Bell work:

Write a statistical question you could ask your classmates about the movies they like.

You will have 10 minutes to ask your classmates the statistical question you wrote during bell work. Create a line plot or a tally chart to display the results.

A statistical question is a question that will result in multiple and varying answers rather than a single answer.

• Statistical questions can be divided into two groups:

categorical or numerical.

Categorical data

• Categorical data is measured qualitatively by placing the items into categories or groups.

Ex. Favorite color, male or female, hair color

• Categorical data is often displayed using a bar graph or a circle graph

Categorical data

• Often times, categorical data does not involve numbers, therefore will not have a mean, median, or range.

• The mode is the answer that occurs most often. The mode is the most useful calculation for categorical data.

Numerical Data

• Numerical data is measured quantitatively and has a value or number for which operations such as addition or averaging make sense.

• Numerical data can be analyzed to find mean, median, range, and other forms of measurement

• Numerical data is often displayed using a line plot (dot plot), histogram, or box and whisker plot.

*We will study each of these in more detail throughout this unit
