In this video you will learn the basics of line and dot plots
Welcome to MooMoMath where we upload a new Math video everyday. In this video I would like to look and line and dot plots.
Line PLOTS use x's above the numbers to show the amount
for each number, whereas Dot PLOTS use dots to show the
amounts above each number on a number line.
Let’s look at an example.
Hayden surveyed 20 students about the number of calls they made
in a 24hour period. His results are as follows:
4, 3, 4, 5, 0, 2, 4, 4, 5, 9, 4, 5, 4, 1, 0, 5, 3, 3, 5, 6
1) Find the minimum (least) and the maximum (greatest) values.
MINIMUM = 0 MAXIMUM = 9
2) Draw a number line from the minimum to the maximum.
3) Draw a DOT or X above the number line to show each observation
(answer) in Hayden's list. Cross off the number as you plot them.
4) LABEL the number line to show what was being counted.
5) Give the dot plot (or line plot) a TITLE.
