As you'll know by now, data handling is an important part of KS3 Maths. Once you've collected data then you have to analyse it. There are many ways to do this, such as graphs or diagrams. But lists and frequency tables are one of the simplest and they can help you to make a graph or diagram.
Lists and frequency tables are used to put collected data into some sort of order before it can be analysed. Football league tables are an excellent example of frequency tables. They record lots of different data - games won, drawn or lost, goals scored, goals conceded etc. You can then use this information to find out which team has the most points, which has won the most games, which has conceded the most goals... the list goes on. It's not just in football league tables that frequency lists are useful. They come in handy when analysing any type of data, from questionnaires to weather patterns.
This quiz deals with drawing up and reading information from data lists and frequency tables. Let's see how well you understand them.
