Tables and Graphs
What are the different types of Graphs?
When do I use a line graph?
In addition to drawing a graph its also important to be able to read a graph
A Table presents the data as a table of rows and columns, and is used to see details and compare values.
When do I use a Bar Graph?
Bar graphs can be used when comparing 2 or more categories
Bar graphs can be used to show results from a survey
Example: Whats your favorite sport?
When data is changing over time
Example: average temperatures over a year
Steps for making a line graph
1. Identify the variables:
Independent variable goes on the left side of the data table and the x axis of the graph.
Dependent variable goes on the right side of the data table and the y axis of the graph.
Sarah bought a new car in 2001 for £24,000 the value of her car changed each year as shown in the table below.
Value of Sarah's car
IV: Years since Sarah bought her car
DV: The value of her car
2. Number and label each axis
3. Plot the data points
When do I use a pie graph?
A pie graph is used when you want to compare data as a whole of 100%
Its easy to compare data as a whole when you look at the sections of the pie graph
The pieces are given in percentages and all the pieces must equal the whole 100%
What's your favorite type of movie?
Comedy = 4 4/20=0.2 x 100 = 20%
Action = 5 5/20=0.25 x 100 = 25%
Romance = 6 6/20=0.3 x 100 = 30%
Drama = 1 1/20=0.05 x 100 = 5%
Sci-fi = 4 4/20=0.2 x 100 20%
20 = 100%
The table below shows the music preferences of 300 students at a school. Construct a pie graph to represent this data
Music Type Number of Students
Rock and Roll 84
Rap 105 / 300 x 100 = 35%
Rock and Roll 84 / 300 x 100 = 28%
Alternative 45 / 300 x 100 = 15%
Country 36 / 300 x 100 = 12%
Classical 30 / 300 x 100 = 10%
Rap 105 / 300 x 360 = 126
Rock and Roll 84 / 300 x 360 = 100.8
Alternative 45 / 300 x 360 = 54
Country 36 / 300 x 360 = 43.2
Classical 30 / 300 x 360 = 36
What every graph needs
Title - you need a descriptive title that shows what is being tested
Scales - your scale needs to be even the entire way through and start at 0.
Label on the x and y axis - you are labeling the dependent and independent variables.
Key - describe what colours, bars or sections mean.
Units - How your data is measured.
Positive and Negative trends
Be able to produce a table with data
Generate between 1 and 3 different types of graphs
Understand how to read different types of graphs and data
Sport Boys Girls
Baseball 8 8
Football 8 3
Soccer 6 10
Tennis 4 7
Track 2 5
Basketball 9 2

Extension task 1:
The teenager has now decided to include 90 minutes of exercise a day and will reduce the time evenly between talking on the phone and watching TV how will this affect the data?
Extension task 2:
The teenager has now decided to spread the exercise time evenly throughout the day how will this change the data?
Phone: 4.08 - 3.33 = 14%
TV: 3.12 - 2.37 = 10%
Exercise: 0 - 1.5 = 6%
Sleep: 7.92 - 7.67 = 32%
Phone: 4.08 - 3.83 = 16%
School: 6 - 5.75 = 24%
Studying: 0.96 - 0.71 = 3%
Eating: 1.92 - 1.67 = 7%
TV: 3.12 - 2.87 = 12%
Exercise: 0 - 1.5 = 6%
