Frequency table at a glance

 

A frequency table is used to display a data set; it is often the starting point for graphing frequency diagrams such as bar charts, pictograms and histograms. The first column in a frequency table shows the data values – categorical or quantitative. The second column is the frequency of each data value. For example, a frequency table might display the number of goals scored by a football team over a given number of matches – in this case, the first column would have the number of goals (0, 1, 2, 3,…).

 

When constructing a frequency table, it is often useful to begin with a tally chart to organise and count the number of data items in each category or group.

 

We can easily find the mode from a frequency table by identifying the category or group with the highest frequency

 

To find the mean for ungrouped data, we multiply the data value by its frequency for each category, then sum and divide by the number of pieces of data. To estimate the mean for grouped data, we use the same process as above, using the midpoint of each group to estimate the data value.

 

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional Statistics worksheets, for example a mean, median, mode and range worksheet or pie chart worksheet.

 

 

For more teaching and learning support on Statistics our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
