• Frequency Distribution
• Frequency Histograms (Relative Frequency Histograms), Ogives
• Stem-and-Leaf Plots
• Dot Plots
• Scatter Plots
• Pie Charts
• Pareto Charts
• Mean, Median, Mode and Range of Quantitative Data
• Weighted Mean of a Data Set and Mean of a Frequency Distribution
• Variance and Standard Deviation (population or sample)
• Empirical Rule
• Quartiles and Interquartile Range (5-number summary)  with a Box-and-Whisker Plot
• Fractiles (eg: percentiles, deciles)
• Z-Scores
• Probability Distribution
• Discrete Probability Distribution
• Expected Value of a Discrete Probability Distribution
• Binomial Experiment
