Collecting and Interpreting Categorical Data
Personalize this lesson on categorical data and relative frequencies by using data that is based on your class's interests. Survey the class, set up a two-way frequency table, calculate relative marginal and conditional frequencies. Next, interpret the data and make comparisons based on the results. Included are detailed lesson plans, solutions, and a practice resource sheet that can be done in class or assigned as homework.
What is a Frequency Table?
So you have a data set and you want a visual diagram to help you analyze the data. Not sure how to draw it? The instructor illustrates four different ways to look at a frequency table: two tally tables, one line graph, and one bar graph. You could use any of these that would work for your data set.
Seventh graders choose five brands of any given product. They survey twenty people, asking their favorite choice of those five brands. They create a frequency table, a bar chart, and a percentage graph in their mock advertisement.
Frequency Tables and Stem-and-Leaf Plots
Students are introduced to the function of frequency tables and stem and leaf plots. In groups, they determine the frequency of their teacher coughing, ringing a bell or raising their hand. To end the lesson, they determine frequency using a stem and leaf plot.
Skittles, Skittles, A Rainbow of Colors!
Sixth graders research the candy, Skittles, on various websites. They sort the candies according to color, and develop a frequency table, line graph, bar graph, and circle graph using Microsoft Excel.
In this data collection and graphing worksheet, students examine a table and a bar graph to determine which better displays information. They work on Gizmo activities and answer the associated questions about frequency, frequency tables, tally charts, and data displays. Gizmo can be found at www.explorelearning.com.
Birds of a Feather: Feeding and Frequency
Middle schoolers prepare frequency tables and construct a circle graph of the species of birds observed at bird feeders.
Make a Frequency Table and a Histogram for a Given Set of Data
In this data recording and data organization activity, learners create one frequency table and one histogram for a given list of data. Explanations and examples for frequency tables and histograms are given.
There is a Difference: Histograms vs. Bar Graphs
Raw data, sounds painful! Young analysts collect and analyze raw data sets. They explore information regarding political party affiliation and presidential age at inauguration. They use this data to construct frequency tables, histograms, and graphs.
Graphing Made Easy
Fourth graders discover the appropriate way to construct and analyze bar, line, picto, and circle graphs. They set up frequency tables and perform some statistical analysis (mean, median, and mode) on their data.
Seventh graders construct frequency tables and box-and-whisker plots. After constructing tables and plots, they take a quiz on mean, median, mode, range, scientific notation, and number properties.
Mean From a Grouped Frequency Table
In this frequency table worksheet, students analyze 4 different frequency tables and calculate the mean, median and modal class for each table. Students also draw a frequency polygon for the data.
Frequency Tables and Histograms reteach 10.2
For this using a frequency table and a histogram worksheet, students observe these two ways to display frequency of events and use them to solve problems. Students solve four word problems.
Probability Experiment Simulation: Design and Data Analysis Using a Graphing Calculator
Seventh graders simulate probability experiments. Using a graphing calculator, 7th graders design, conduct, and draw conclusions from simulations or probability experiments. Students construct frequency tables and compare the experimental data to theoretical data.
Reading Frequency Tables
In this data interpretation worksheet, students record the data from 10 examples into frequency tables. They group 10 more data sets, and make a frequency table for each.
Frequency Tables: Enrichment
In this frequency table worksheet, students conduct a survey, record data and choose the appropriate data to record in a frequency table. Students then answer 5 related questions. Houghton Mifflin test is referenced.
Creating Frequency Tables
In this frequency table worksheet, learners explore a given set of numbers. They group the data and create a frequency table. This one-page worksheet contains ten problems.
In this frequency table worksheet, students solve and complete 20 different types of problems. First, they make a frequency table and percent frequency table. Then, students draw a dot plot, a stem-and-leaf plot and a histogram of the data given. They also find the mode, median, and first and third quartiles.
Frequency Tables and Histograms
In this frequency table/histogram learning exercise, students use given data to complete a frequency table and answer a set of 8 questions. Houghton Mifflin text is referenced.
Mean, Median, and Mode for Frequency Tables
In this mean, median, and mode worksheet, students solve 10 short answer problems. Students find the mean, median, and mode of various data sets. Students make frequency tables from the data sets.
