Frequency Polygons and Ogives
Chapter 2.2 Frequency Polygons and Ogives

The frequency polygon The frequency polygon is a graph that displays the data by using lines that connect point plotted for the frequencies at the midpoints of the classes. The frequencies are represented by the heights of the points

Record High Temperatures for Each State
Class Limits Class boundaries Class Midpoint Frequency 2 8 18 13 7 1

Steps for creating a frequency polygon
Find the midpoints of each class. Draw and label the x and y axes. Label the x- axis with the midpoints of each class, the y- axis as frequency Plot the points, x values = midpoints, y values = frequency Connect adjacent point with line segments. Connect to x-axis at beginning and end of graph

Ogive The ogive is a graph that represents the cumulative frequencies for the classes in a frequency distribution.

Steps for creating an Ogive
Find the cumulative frequency for each class Draw the x and y axes. Label x-axis with class boundaries, y-axis cumulative frequencies Plot the cumulative frequency Connect adjacent points with line segments
