guide to Proficient DATA HANDLING!   What is Data
Handling?
Uses of Data Handling:  Data handling during the Foundation Phase,
is a process where information is gathered and
recorded and then presented in a way that is
significant and useful to others.
Data handling is also known as statistics,
and is taught gradually over time
during the Foundation Phase.
- Can be used to collect data.
- Study data.
- Retrieve or gather information.
- To compare data.
- Compile the mode, median and mean of data.
- Interpret data for information.
- Share data for information.
- Handling data.
- Maintaining data records and archives.

Types of Data Handling:

Tally charts : is a way of counting and
recording frequency.
Data handling or statistics can be presented
in various different forms, such as:
1. Pictographs
2. Block diagrams
3. Bar graphs
4. Line graphs
5. Pie charts
6. Dot plots
7. Histogram
8. Stem and leaf plots
9. Tally charts
10. Frequency table. Pie chart : is a graph which represents data
in a circle and each part of the pie
represents a different data set. Types of Data Handling:

represents a different data set. Pictographs : Is a data handling type that
displays numbers facts or data using pictures.
Dot plots : are graphical graphs using dots to
visualise data on a y-axis and x-axis.  Block diagrams: is a type of graph which uses
a block to represent data on a y-axis and a x-axis.
Stem and leaf plots : is a data plot that represents
number data where each data value is
split into a "leaf" and "stem".  Pictographs : Is a data handling type that
displays numbers facts or data using pictures.
Dot plots : are graphical graphs using dots to
visualise data on a y-axis and x-axis.  Block diagrams: is a type of graph which uses
a block to represent data on a y-axis and a x-axis.
Stem and leaf plots : is a data plot that represents
number data where each data value is
split into a "leaf" and "stem".  Bar graphs : is a data handling tool used to
compare data through the use of bars.
Number values are found on the left side
and names are found at the bottom.
Histograms : cousin to the bar graph but uses
numbers instead. Numbers are placed in
different number ranges. Line graphs : show data facts connected via dots
using a y-axis and a x-axis. Frequency table : used to record and
document frequency tallies.  PrevNext
