A sample that is chosen without any member or element in the population being favored or shown preference.

BIASED SAMPLES

Convenience Sample

Choosing members of a population that are easy to access.

Histogram

Median

The middle number in an organized set of data.

Mean

The average number in a set of data.

Mode

The number that occurs the most often in a set of data.

Measures of Central Tendency

Mean, Median, and Mode.

Measures of Variation

Measures that describe the spread values in a set of data.

Range

The difference between the greatest and least numbers in a set of data.

Quartiles

The values that separate the data into four equal subsets.

Q1 (Lower Quartile)

It divides the lower half of data into two equal parts.

Q2 (Median)

It divides all of the data into two equal parts.

Q3 (Upper Quartile)

It divides the upper half of data into two equal parts.

IQR (Interquartile Range)

Q2

Systematic Random Sample

Members of the sample are chosen at a specific time or item (number) interval.

4 ways to collect data

Published newspaper, observational study, experiment, and survey

What a frequency table is used for

to tally the frequency of events before the histogram is made.

Frequency

The number of elements in a measurement class. It is written along the vertical axis.

Measurement Classes

Equal intervals which are written along the horizontal axis of the graph.

MATRIX

A rectangular arrangement of numbers in rows and columns.

DIMENSIONS OF A MATRIX

Is described as the number of rows in the matrix by the number of columns

ELEMENT

POSITION OF AN ELEMENT

Is given by the element's row and column location.

Lower Outlier
