Using Data Tables Worksheets
What Are Data Tables Used For?
Data is complex, and all data is different. Accordingly, Data Tables has a wealth of options which can be used to configure how it will obtain the data to display in the table, and how it processes that data.
There are three core concepts in how Data Tables handles data, which are discussed in detail below.
Tables are a useful way to organize information using rows and columns. Tables are a versatile organization tool and can be used to communicate information on their own, or they can be used to accompany another data representation type (like a graph). Tables support a variety of parameters and can be used to keep track of frequencies, variable associations, and more.
For example, given below are the weights of 20 students in grade 10:
50, 45, 48, 39, 40, 48, 54, 50, 48, 48, 50, 39, 41, 46, 44, 43, 54, 57, 60, 45.
Good Graphics Go Far!
Accurate and easy to read graphics are very important in decision-making processes across all fields. They are so important in some cases, like launch time at NASA, that being able to rapidly read and interpret information can be a matter of life and death.
