Hannah's scribepost for Sept. 29





Question 4







Samantha recorded the temperature on a
hot day. She displayed the data in a line
graph.



a) Explain how this graphy could be misleading.



I think this graph is misleading because from a distance, it looks like there's a big difference in the temperature when there isn't really.



b) What conclusions does the graph suggest about the changes in the temperature?


Um, it concludes that there isn't much of a change in the day's temperature. But the way the graph is written makes it seem that there are big changes in the temperature.



c) How should the graph be redrawn to make the data clearer ?


Maybe if the intervals were labelled in the right way, then the graph wouldn't look so bad.



Example :

Good job hannah :) Your scribe post was neat and organized. You added the picure of the graph, from the math textbook to help more with the questions. Not only that , you also wrote the questions , and answers to those in sentences which makes it clear and undsterdable to me, why you gave that answer . The font was pretty small, there was typo's my suggestion is that read over your work just to check your spelling , but all in all good job . :)

Nice post Hannah! Although there were spelling errors and the print was a little too small, it was still a great post!

Nice job Hannah though don't you have to put a break in the y-axis if the intervals are different? Though again nice job.
