Notes for Session 2, Part E

Note 9

The next transition in the representation is to replace frequencies with relative frequencies. The relative frequency bar graph looks exactly the same as the frequency bar graph. It is important to note that the sizes of the bars remain the same whether you use frequencies or relative frequencies.

If you are working with actual raisins, draw a frequency bar graph and a relative frequency bar graph with your data. Do your graphs look the same?

Groups: Small groups can present their bar graphs to the whole group at this time.
