    This is an excellent and very complete tutorial on how to take data from a data set, enter it into the lists in a Texas Instruments calculator, and plot them using the histogram stat plot. Also discussed in this video is how to make sure the plot shows up on the graph screen and how to use the X scale feature to alter the way the results show up.
