Overview
• Grades/Quiz
• Homework tonight: Journal
• Overview of this week
Homework from Friday
• Questions on just the part involving
histograms?
Histograms:
• What is the biggest difference between a
histogram and a bar graph?
Histograms:
• The bars are always touching
• Used to describe Quantitative Data
– Whereas Bar graphs are used to describe
Categorical Data
• When creating a histogram:
– I will never penalize you for what you choose as a
“bin width” (within reason)
– You need to have a title and label your axis.

Describing Histograms:
• SOCS:
– Shape: Modal + Symmetric vs. Skewed
– Outliers?
– Center
– Spread
Example One:
Follow Up:
• Would you expect the mean to be larger or
smaller than the median?
– Why?
Example Two:
Frequency
Temperature in the Bahamas over the course of a
year
Temperature
Follow Up Question
• In the last example, would you expect the
mean to be larger or smaller than the
median?
– Why?
Example Three:
• What’s wrong with this histogram?
Practice Problems
• Try some in your table groups!
