frequency an interval made up of data values in that interval
frequency table a table that groups a set of data values into intervals and shows the frequency for each interval
histogram a graph that can display data from a frequency table
cumulative frequency table a table that shows the number of data values that lie in or below a given interval
symmetric describes a graph consisting of two parts that are congruent to each other
skewed left(negative)/skewed right (positive) distributions with fewer observations on the left/right
bell-shaped when the graph of a data set creates a symmetric bell-shape
uniform when the observations in a set of data are equally spread across the range of the distribution
unimodal/bimodal distributions with one clear peak/two clear peaks
gap areas of a distribution where there are no observations
outlier an extreme value that differs greatly from the other observations
measures of central tendency measurements that summarize a data set
mean the sum of the data values divided by the total number of data values (the average)
median the middle value in a data set when the values are arranged in order
mode the data item that occurs most times
measure of dispersion a measurement that describes how spread out the values in a data set are
range the difference between the greatest and least values
quartiles values that divide into four equal parts

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.

To see how well you know the information, try the Quiz or Test activity.
