Notes for Session 3, Part B

Note 3

You will take an evolutionary approach to developing the histogram. The objective of this activity is for you to see the relationship between the line plot, the stem and leaf plot, and the histogram. The line plot shows the frequencies of the rows, but not the actual data values. The stem and leaf plot contains more detailed information than the histogram in that all of the data values are shown. And finally, the relative frequency histogram shows the relative sizes of the frequencies for each interval, although it does not explicitly show those frequencies.
