Classifying Data

  • Objective
  • Classify data as either categorical or quantitative
  • Understand the difference between discrete and continuous
slide2

Lesson Quiz: 6-5 Answers

1. The data set gives the times of Tara’s one-way ride to school (in minutes) for one week. Find the mean, median, mode, and range of the data set.

{8, 3, 5, 4, 5}

mean: 5; median: 5; mode: 5; range: 5

2.Which value describes the time that occurred most often?

mode, 13

3. Which value best describes Tara’s ride time? Explain.

Mean, 13; It’s the average time

slide7

Make one categorical observation about the picture above.

Explain why this is a quantitative observation.

slide8

Make one categorical observation about the picture above.

Explain why this is a qualitative observation.

Make one quantitative observation about the picture above.

Explain why this is a quantitative observation.

discrete data

Discrete Data

Only certain values are possible

(there are gaps between the possible values)

0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7

examples discrete data
Examples: Discrete Data
  • Number of children in a family
  • Number of students passing a stats exam
  • Number of crimes reported to the police
  • Number of bicycles sold in a day.

Discrete data

We would not find:

  • 2.2 children in a family
  • 88.5 students passing an exam
  • 127.2 crimes being reported
  • half a bicycle being sold in one day
slide11

Continuous Data

0 1000

Theoretically, with a fine enough measuring device.

(no gaps between possible values)

examples continuous data
Examples: Continuous data
  • Size of bicycle frame
  • Height
  • Time
  • Age
  • Temperature

Any value within an interval is possible with a fine enough measuring device
