The data collection method uses written tests and interviews. The research subjects were one student with a high mathematical ability category and one student with a moderate mathematical ability category. The results showed that: (1) Students with high mathematical abilities can understand data, interpret data, and evaluate data well. Students with a high mathematical ability to communicate data by presenting data in the form of diagrams or graphs, but without considering the characteristics of the data in the presentation; (2) while students with moderate mathematical ability can understand data well.
