Bar Graph or Double Bar Graph Line Plot Line Graph

A bar graph uses length of bars to represent numbers and COMPARE data. In some cases, the use of a pair of bars to compare data is more useful. This kind of graph is called a double bar graph. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Line Plot

Instead of comparing data you may want to show the spread of the data using a line plot. *Spread of the data- using MMMR to best represent our data. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Line Graph Line graphs are used to track changes over short

and long periods of time. When smaller changes exist, line graphs are better to use than bar graphs. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparin Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Frequency Table A frequency table shows how often an item, a number, or range occurs.

Could be used when counting responses, or to group data into intervals. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Stem-and-Leaf Stem-and-leaf allow you to easily see the least, greatest and median values in a set of data.

MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Circle Graph Circle graphs are best to use when you are trying to compare parts of a whole. They do not show changes over time. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing

Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Dot Plot Dot plots compare the frequency an item, number or event occurs in groups. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Histogram

Histograms show how often data falls into different ranges or intervals. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313 Box Plot (formerly known as box and whisker) If you have a large set of data, and want to present how the data cluster you may use a

box plot. The box plot displays the median, the quartiles and outlier of a set of data, but does not display specific values. MathisFun.Com- Organizing and Comparing Data; Math on Call p. 262-313
