Line Graph Project By Harleen Suri, Eliza Neights, Carina Tse

2
What is a Line Graph? Graph used to represent data with an independent and dependent variable when showing changes over time Data is plotted on the graph and connected with lines

3
When is it Used? When you are showing changes over time

4
Real World Example The graph shows the temperature (°F) of New York City over 6 days Can easily see trend of data Could be used by meteorologists

5
**What Type of Data Do You Need?**

Set of data- Can be a single or multiple or single set Need key if using multiple sets of data

6
**Average Time Spent Watching TV**

Data Collected Average Time Spent Watching TV in Mrs. Ellwood's Class Time (minutes) Monday 37 Tuesday 40 Wednesday 39 Thursday 43 Friday 52 Saturday 83 Sunday 80

8
**How We Made the Graph Draw and label a x- axis and y- axis**

Create a scale on each axis Plot your data points Connect each point with line segments Give your graph a title

9
Quiz Question A TV company wants to schedule commercials during the day kids watch the most amount of TV. Mrs. Ellwood’s class was selected to complete a survey based on how much TV they watch. Find the largest increase in time TV was watched. Then, find the percent of increase of time TV was watched.

11
**How to Solve Find the largest increase in the graph.**

From Friday to Saturday, the increase in time was greatest Then find percent of increase to the nearest tenth Difference Original = 83-52 52 ≈ 59.6%

12
**Advantages of Line Graphs**

Can visually see the trend of the data Can see how data increases/decreases Can compare two sets of data Use a line graph with multiple sets of data

13
**Disadvantages of Line Graphs**

Hard to see the specific data points when the scale is large Sometimes the scale can change the appearance of the data
