Histograms vs. Bar Graphs

CC_BY-NC-SA

Using data from the Internet, students summarize information about party affiliation and ages at inauguration of Presidents of the United States in frequency tables and graphs.  This leads to a discussion about categorical data (party affiliations) vs. numerical data (inauguration ages) and histograms vs bar graphs. This activity is from NCTM Illuminations at http://illuminations.nctm.org/Lesson.aspx?id=2983
