This histogram resource includes guided notes, a practice worksheet and a scavenger hunt. Your students will have the opportunity to create, interpret and discuss histograms. Below, you will find a detailed description of the notes, worksheet and scavenger hunt.
There are two small pages of guided notes. The first page provides the definition of a histogram and step by step instructions on how to create a histogram. The bottom portion of the notes has students examine three types (uniform, symmetric, and skewed) of data distribution that could exist on a histogram.
The two page practice worksheet requires students to create two histograms from data sets. Students are provided space to make a frequency table. A variety of questions are given for each histogram. Students will identify and calculate the range, measures of central tendency and outliers. They will also be asked where they might see histograms and the purpose of histograms.
A histogram scavenger hunt will navigate students through twelve thought provoking questions. Students will explore and answer questions about measures of central tendency, the size of a data set and the appearance of the data distribution. One question requires students to make a histogram using sixteen numbers. At the end of the scavenger hunt, there are two open ended questions for students to answer and explain their thinking.
Detailed answer keys are provided.
