  1. 1. GOAL 3: Bar Graphs, Line Graphs & Picto-Graphs Tables, charts and graphs are convenient ways to clearly show your data.
  2. 2. Day Chocolate Strawberry White Monday 53 78 126 Tuesday 72 97 87 Wednesday 112 73 86 Thursday 33 78 143 Friday 76 47 162 The cafeteria wanted to collect data on how much milk was sold in 1 week. The table below shows the results. We are going to take this data and display it in 3 different types of graphs.
  3. 3. Scale / Intervals • Counting by a number is the scale of a graph. Scales can be counting by 2’s, 3’s,4’s, 5’s 10’s … • Intervals should be equal. Like 100, 200, 300 units.
  4. 4. Bar Graph • A bar graph is used to show relationships between groups. • The two items being compared do not need to affect each other. • It's a fast way to show big differences. Notice how easy it is to read a bar graph. Chocolate Milk Sold 53 72 112 33 76 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Day AmountSold Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
  5. 5. Line Graph • A line graph is used to show continuing data; how one thing is affected by another. • It's clear to see how things are going by the rises and falls a line graph shows. Chocolate MIlk Sold 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Day AmountSold Chocolate
  6. 6. On what day did they sell the most chocolate milk? Chocolate Milk Sold 53 72 112 33 76 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Day AmountSold Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Wednesday
  7. 7. Chocolate 0 20 40 60 80 100 120 Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Day AmountSold Chocolate On what day did they have a drop in chocolate milk sales? Thursday
  8. 8. Choosing the Right Graph • Use a bar graph if you are not looking for trends (or patterns) over time; and the items (or categories) are not parts of a whole. • Use a line graph if you need to see how a quantity has changed over time.  Line graphs enable us to find trends (or patterns) over time.

  10. 10. • All pictographs have a title. • Rows and columns shape the pictograph. • Label each row and column. • Use pictures to show the data. • Each picture equals a certain amount of data. • Pictographs need a key.

  13. 13. Bar Graph • The purpose of a bar graph is to display and compare data. • Bar graphs use bars to show the data. • A bar graph must include: - a title - labeled X and Y axes - equal intervals are used on the Y axis - the bars are evenly spaced apart from each other
  14. 14. • A line graph is used to illustrate change over time. • Line graphs need: - Title - Labeled X and Y axes - Equal Intervals - Data displayed by points connected into lines
