Frequency Polygons are graphs that are constructed out of a frequency table. To create a Frequency Polygon just follow these steps:
1) Create a histogram
2) Plot the midpoints for each bar on the histogram
3) Plot a point with a value of zero one bar below the smallest class. Also plot a point with a value of zero one bar above the largest class
4) Connect all the data point with a straight line
