How to set up successful graphs

How to set up your graph!

How to set up your graph! Y Axis (This is for your dependent variable)

How to set up your graph! X Axis
(This is for your independent variable)

TAILS Teachers’s Favorite Singer T - Title

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

TAILS T - Title A – Axis S – Scale
Teachers’s Favorite Singer Decide on an appropriate scale for each axis. Choose a scale that lets you make the graph as large as possible for your paper and data T - Title A – Axis S – Scale

How to determine scale Favorite Singer Number of Teachers Toby Keith 22 Madonna 15 Elvis 11 Sting 5 Sinatra 2 Scale is determined by your highest & lowest number. In this case your scale would be from 2 – 22.

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 T – Title A – Axis I – Interval S – Scale

How to determine Intervals
Favorite Singer Number of Teachers Toby Keith 22 Madonna 15 Elvis 11 Sting 5 Sinatra 2 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.

TAILS T – Title A – Axis I – Interval S – Scale
Teachers’s Favorite Singer T – Title A – Axis I – Interval S – Scale 25 20 15 10 5

TAILS T – Title A – Axis I – Interval L – Labels S – Scale
Teachers’s Favorite Singer T – Title A – Axis I – Interval L – Labels S – Scale 25 20 15 Number of Teachers 10 5 LABEL your bars or data points Toby Keith Madonna Elvis Sting Sinatra Singers Label your Y Axis. What do those numbers mean? Give the bars a general label. What do those words mean?

When to use… Bar graphs Line 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 For continuous data useful for showing trends over time

Practice Interpreting Data: It is important that you be able to interpret data that is represented in graph form.

Question #1 Identify the graph that matches each of the following stories: I had just left home when I realized I had forgotten my books so I went back to pick them up.

Question #2 Identify the graph that matches each of the following stories: I started out running and slowed down as I got tired

Question #4a Identify the graph that matches each of the following stories: The rock fell from the top of the cliff
