Creating Data Tables and Graphs

--All data tables and graphs must have titles. --Units should also be included (where appropriate).

Data Tables Body Mass (kg)Bicycling (calories) Basketball (calories) Sitting (calories) 306012021 407716427 509520633 Calories Burned in 30 Minutes of Activity

Data tables are used to organize and record measurements that you make. Include columns and rows. Those are labeled and include units. Data Tables

Body Mass (kg)Bicycling (calories) Basketball (calories) Sitting (calories) 306012021 407716427 509520633 Calories Burned in 30 Minutes of Activity

Bar and Line Graphs Horizontal axis is the x-axis, vertical axis is the y-axis Y (responding variable) X (manipulated variable)

Make sure the each axis is labeled The vertical axis (y-axis) should be labeled with the responding variable, the horizontal axis (x- axis) should be labeled with the manipulated variable Include units Bar and Line Graphs

Line Graphs Minimum wage (\$)

Used to display data that shows how one variable (the responding variable) changes in response to another variable (the manipulated variable) Line Graphs

Bar Graphs

Used to display data in a number of separate categories The lengths of the bars are used to represent and compare data. Bar Graphs

Double Bar Graphs

Used to display data 2 sets of data. The two bars of each measurement are shown next to each other. Double Bar Graphs

Pie Charts

Used to display data in a number of separate categories Circle graphs can only be used when the data can be expressed as percentages of a whole. Pie Charts
