How did the Pole Vault records change over time? • They use a pole to jump over the bar. • Their score has gotten higher but from 1980-2010 they’ve pretty much stayed the same. • The record probably advanced because of fitter healthier people and better poles. • Over the years people could jump higher. • It went low to high.
  15. 15. What is the overall trend of the Pole Vault data? • They changed the material of the pole. • It slopes upwards this time because their height is increasing. • The data show that people achieved new heights that were incredibly high. It shows that there was a new record most Olympic games and it also shows a lot or records were close. • People could jump higher so the graph’s slope has gone up. • The clothes were heavy but they got lighter so they could jump higher.
