### Transcript

• 1. Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S Using Circle Graphs to Represent Data
• 2. Circle Graphs Another way to display data is in the form of a circle graph or pie chart. Circle graphs are useful in displaying percentages, or parts of a whole. Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S
• 3. Circle Graphs Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S Properties of Circle Graphs: &#x2022; They are circular shaped graphs with the entire circle representing the whole. &#x2022; The circle is then split into parts, or sectors. &#x2022; Each sector represents a part of the whole. &#x2022; Each sector is proportional in size to the amount each sector represents, therefore it is easy to make generalizations and comparisons.
• 4. Constructing Circle Graphs Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S When constructing a circle graph, follow the steps below 1. Is the Data Suitable--Determine if there is a "whole" for the data. Then determine what the different parts, or data groups, of the whole are. 2. Calculate Percentages--For data that is not already given as a percentage, convert the amounts for each part, or data group size, into a percentage of the whole. 3. Draw the Graph--Draw a circle and draw in a sector for each data group. 4. Title and Label the Graph--Label the sectors with the data group name and percentage. Then add a title to the graph. This is the same as the title of the table.
• 5. Example Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S Construct a circle graph for the following data.
• 6. Constructing a Circle Graph Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S Step 1 &#x2013; Is the Data Suitable? &#x2022; There are five parts to the whole. Each data group is a category of sneaker brands (1) Adidas, (2) Nike, (3) Reebok, (4) Asics, (5) Other. Step 2 &#x2013; Calculate Percentages &#x2022; Calculate the whole: 150 + 192 + 60 + 108 + 90 = 600 &#x2022; Calculate the percentage for each part ex. Adidas: 150/600 = .25 or 25%
• 7. Constructing a Circle Graph Unit 2 &#x2013; Data Analysis &amp; Interpretation Consumer Mathematics 30S Step 3 &#x2013; Draw the Graph &#x2022; First, draw a circle. Then, draw in the sectors of the circle using a protractor to calculate the size of the sector. &#x2022; The percentage has to be converted to a degrees. ex. 25% or .25 x 360o = 90o Step 4 &#x2013; Title and Label the Graph
