What Do I Know About Graphs/Graphing ?

Different Graphs

First of all as most or all of us know, there are many different types of graphs. These graphs are each good for something in their own ways, but we have to remember that just because it's good for one thing, it doesn't mean that it's best to be used all the time. I will be giving and showing you just some of the graphs are preferred to be used the most. These graphs will be listen and seen below.

- Circle Graph

Best for comparing categories to the whole using percents. The sum of the circle graph could be 100%.

- Bar Graph

Best for comparing data across categories.

- Line Graph

Best for showing changes over time.

Making A Graph

When making a graph (normal) make sure that you have everything needed, to make it a real graph. These things would be :
- Axis (y,x)
- Title
- Labels (both y and x axis)
- Scales Labeled (with the same value of intervals)
- Colors
- Origin

When asked to give an explanation to what conclusion it draws to your attention. Make sure to answer in a way such as math, and not too much of unnecessary because, people would have a hard time figuring out what you mean.

When you make a misleading graph it's basically the exact same thing with a normal graph with everything the same, but with a few or some differences . A difference such as distorting or changing something inside the graph, to make it stand out and draw more attention rather than everything looking exactly the same. One way is by making a break on the interval which looks like this :

Another way is by distorting the size of the given data which looks like this :

That is just two ways that can be used to make a graph misleading. You also have to include how you made the graph misleading, and why can this be misleading. But don't forget to include things about the trend, because it gives people more of an idea and more of a clear understand on what the misleading graph you made is trying to show.

What Do I Need To Improve On ?

I need to improve on making sure that i have put everything i need to make a graph a complete graph and that's a goal I'm looking forward on achieving on a next test or assignment .

Thank you for viewing my scribe .
