Raquel's BOB Scribepost

3 Things I Know About Graphing:

What these graphs are used for:

Bar Graph: Are best for comparing data across categories.
Line Graph: Are best for showing changes in data over time.
Circle Graph: Are best for comparing categories in percent.

Pictograph: Are best for comparing data that can be easily counted and representing data.

Misrepresenting Data:
1: Distorting the scale

You are distorting the scale because there is a break in the y axis.

2: Distorting the Visuals:

You are distorting the visuals by making the smaller data bigger than the other data which, makes the data look like it is more important than the others.

3: Distorting the Size of the Bars

You are distorting the size of the bars because in graph B You are making it look fatter than it usually is.

The Intervals:
The interval has to be the same distance or the graph will be distorted. The interval is the space or distance between things.

What I know that would improve my test:
I would put a tally chart with my t-chart. I would also talk about the trends in my paragraphs.
