Transcript of Drawing Great Graphs

Drawing Great Graphs
The basics.
You need :
graph paper
a ruler
a SHARP pencil
The Axes
The graph should fill the paper, so draw the axes close to the edges of the paper.
Start your scale at zero.
Your scale should take up as much of the axis as possible.
Your scale should go up in equal amounts.
Number should be on the lines of the graph paper NOT between them
Line of Best Fit
Plot the points as small x's.

Draw a line the goes through most of the points, leaving out any odd results.

Lines can be straight OR curved.
Remember tp leave space for the labels!
The independent variable (what you measure) goes on the bottom (x) axis.
The independent variable is usually the first column
in your table of results.
e.g. 0 2 4 6 8 etc
Extra Help
Choose easy numbers for you scale divisions: try going up in 1s, 2s, 5s, 10s, 20s or 100s.

Extra Help
Don't forget to label your axes including units.
