3 Scientific Illustrations Photograph – can show an object exactly as it is at a specific point in time. Table – Displays information in rows and columns.

4 Graphs Graphs – used to collect, organize, and summarize data in a visual way. Line graph – shows the relationship between two variables. Bar graph – uses rectangular blocks, or bars, of varying sizes to show the relationship among variables. Circle graph – shows the parts of a whole.

5 Reading Graphs The scale of a graph can be misleading or create a wrong impression, this is called a broken scale and should only be used to highlight small but important changes.
