P.O.D. #6

basic

Use a box-and-whisker plot to represent the following set of data. (This is the same data as yesterday’s POD.)

Use a box-and-whisker plot to represent the following set of data.

(This is the same data as yesterday’s POD.)

Bar Graph

Show the number of items in specific categories

• Categories on horizontal axis
• Quantity on vertical axis
• Space separating the bars

Box-and-Whisker Plot

Show measures of variation for a set of data

• Should be drawn above the number line
• Used for numerical data

Circle Graph

Compare parts of the data to the whole

• Used for categorical data
• Percentages must add up to 100%

Double Bar Graph

Compare two sets of categorical data

• Categories on horizontal axis
• Quantity on vertical axis
• Space separating pairs of bars

Histogram

Show frequency of data divided into equal intervals

• Intervals on horizontal axis
• Quantity on vertical axis
• No space between bars
• Used for numerical data

Line Graph

Show change over a period of time

• Time on horizontal axis
• Quantity on vertical axis
• A line connects each data point to the next data point

Line Plot

Show frequency of data with a number line

• Draw a dot or “x” above the line for each piece of data.
• Used for numerical data

Example:

Select an appropriate display to show the number of boys of different age ranges that participate in athletics

Intervals

Quantity

Histogram

• x-axis = age ranges
• y-axis = number of boys

Example:

Select an appropriate display to show the percent of students in each grade at a middle school.

Part of a whole

Circle Graph

• Each section is one of the grades at the middle school

Example:

The number of home runs hit by each player on a high school baseball team is shown in the list below. Select an appropriate display to show the frequency of data.

Number of Home Runs: 10, 15, 5, 10, 12, 5, 12, 12, 4, 5, 10, 7.

Numerical Data

Line Plot

• Number line = home runs

Example:

Select an appropriate display to show the median age of member in a community band.

Measure of Variation

Box-and-Whisker Plot

• Number line = ages

Example:

Select an appropriate display to show the number of people who have different kinds of pets.

Quantity

Categories

Bar Graph

• x-axis = categories
• y-axis = number of people

2 sets of data

Example:

Select an appropriate display to compare the number of men versus women that chose specific careers.

Quantity

Categories

Double Bar Graph

• x-axis = career choices
• y-axis = number of people

Example:

Select an appropriate display to show the resale value of a person’s car over time.

Change over time

Line Graph

• x-axis = time (years)
• y-axis = value of car
