## Reflection: Vertical Alignment Dot Plots, Box Plots, and Histograms! (Day 2 of 2) - Section 1: Partner Activity

The difference between the following four vocabulary words can be frustrating for students:

1.  Frequency Histogram

2.  Cumulative Frequency Histogram

3.  Relative Frequency Histogram

4.  Relative Cumulative Frequency Histogram

Usually when text books add the word relative, they want the values in the distribution represented as a percent.  When students are struggling with vocabulary, I refer them to the website Math is Fun if it has the word they are researching.  This is an example of the cumulative frequency histogram.

I refer students to Math is fun because it is colorful, user friendly, and easy to read for all reading levels of students.
