Make a histogram using the data you collected on your typical six grade student question.
Decide what the range of each bin should be.
Determine the number of data points in each bin.
Create a frequency scale on the vertical line.
Divide the horizontal line into intervals based on your bin width.
Label the vertical and horizontal lines and create a title for your histogram.
Write a summary of what your histogram shows about your data.
How do you think your histogram would look if you used different intervals?
Each group of data in a histogram is called a bin . Each bin “fills up” with the data that belong in that bin. For example, in a histogram that represents height, each bin represents a range of heights.
To make a histogram, you need to first decide the bin width. Each bin should be the same width.
Remember that the bars in a histogram should touch each other.
