- The student will construct Relative Frequency Tables.
- The student will interpret results and their differences from different data groupings.
- The student will illustrate the data using pie charts and bar graphs.
Based on: Sampling and Data: Data Collection Lab I by Barbara Illowsky, Ph.D., Susan Dean
Summary: This lab allows students to practice and demonstrate techniques used to generate systematic samples. Students will have the opportunity to create relative frequency tables and interpret results based on different data groupings. Explanation of difference from original
