CONSTRUCTING GRAPHS Frequency Histogram Construct a frequency histogram to illustrate the data. 3 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 24681011123579 Sum of Dice Frequency Rolling Dice

CONSTRUCTING GRAPHS Histogram Features Features of a Frequency Histogram Sum of Dice 3 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 24681011123579 Frequency Rolling Dice Appropriate labelling of axes Half column gap here Heading No gaps between columns Columns all the same width Labels

CONSTRUCTING GRAPHS Frequency Polygon Construct a frequency polygon to illustrate the data. 3 1 2 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 24681011123579 Sum of Dice Frequency Rolling Dice Place a dot at the top of each column (in the centre) Now join each dot starting at the ‘origin’ This line should join the x-axis at the next marker This is usually drawn on top of a Frequency Histogram
