In this unit students will learn how to represent data graphically. They will start by drawing cumulative frequency tables and graphs, and then interpreting these graphs (including finding the median). They will then go on to look at quartiles and interquartile range (including from cumulative frequency graphs) and represent data using box plots. Students will then learn how to compare two or more distributions before moving on to draw and interpret histograms.
