TAILS T T - Title Teachers’s Favorite Singer

8
TAILS T - T - Title A - Axis Teachers’s Favorite Singer Y Axis = Dependent Variable X Axis = Independent Variable

10
How to determine scale Scale is determined by your highest & lowest number. In this case your scale would be from 2 – 22. Favorite Singer Number of Teachers Toby Keith22 Madonna15 Elvis11 Sting5 Sinatra2

11
TAILS T – Title A – Axis I – Interval S – Scale Teachers’s Favorite Singer The amount of space between one number and the next or one type of data and the next on the graph. The interval is just as important as the scale Choose an interval that lets you make the graph as large as possible for your paper and data

12
How to determine Intervals The interval is decided by your scale. In this case your scale would be from 2 – 22 and you want the scale to fit the graph. The best interval would be to go by 5’s. Favorite Singer Number of Teachers Toby Keith22 Madonna15 Elvis11 Sting5 Sinatra2

TAILS T – Title A – Axis I – Interval L – Labels S – Scale Teachers’s Favorite Singer Toby Keith Madonna Elvis Sting Sinatra LABEL your bars or data points Singers Give the bars a general label. What do those words mean? Number of Teachers Label your Y Axis. What do those numbers mean?

15
When to use… Bar graphs Bar graphs Used to show data that are not continuous. Allows us to compare data like amounts or frequency or categories Allow us to make generalizations about the data Help us see differences in data Line Graphs Line Graphs For continuous data useful for showing trends over time
