1 Graphing in Science (Tues ) Catalyst: Name and draw as many types of graphs as you can!

2 Agenda Reminders Graphing in Science Graphing Practice

3 Reminders Homework Packet #4 due Friday Quiz #4 on Friday

4 Objective SWBAT (1) Communicate data through tables and graphs. (1) Communicate data through tables and graphs. (2) Create appropriate graphs based on data.

5 Graphing in Science

6 What are the parts of a graph?

7 Title X-axis Y-axis

8 Graphing in Science Graph Parts Title Y-Axis | | |__________________________ X-axis

9 What are the parts of a graph? X-axis = IV

10 What are the parts of a graph? X-axis = IV Y-axis = DV

11 What are the parts of a graph? X-axis = IV Y-axis = DV Title = DV vs. IV Title = DV vs. IV

12 Graphing in Science Graph Parts Title Y-Axis | | |__________________________ X-axis - X-axis = IV (ex: Day #) - Y-axis = DV (ex: Amount of Rain in cm) - Title = DV vs. IV (ex: Amount of Rain vs. Day #)

13 Example Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW

14 What is the IV? Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW

15 What is the DV? Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW

16 What would the title of the graph be? Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW

17 Example Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW

18 Graph list 1.Data in correct location 2.Axes labeled with units (cm, L, s, kg, etc.) 3.Axes evenly spaced out 4.Accurate title 5.Correct graph type

19 Graphing in Science Graph List 1.Data in correct location 2.Axes labeled with units (cm, L, s, kg, etc.) 3.Axes evenly spaced out 4.Accurate title 5.Correct graph type

20 Quick Practice (Left Page) Copy this table down and create a line graph for it! Fertilizer Amount in (mg) - IV Plant Height in (cm) - DV

21 Quick Practice (Left Page) Fertilizer Amount in (mg) - IV Plant Height in (cm) - DV

22 Graph Types Vs.

23 Line Graph - Use when the IV changes amount (day #, amount of fertilizer, etc)

24 Graphing in Science Graph Types - Line Graph - Use when the IV changes amount (day #, amount of fertilizer, etc)

25 Graph Types Bar Graph - Use when the IV changes type (person name, color of flower, etc.)

26 Graphing in Science Graph Types -Line Graph - Use when the IV changes amount (day #, amount of fertilizer, etc) -Bar Graph - Use when the IV changes type (person name, color of flower, etc.)

27 Summary Take 3 minutes to write a summary of todays notes! Be prepared to do a short lab!

28 Graphing Practice You will be at four different stations. For each station, create a table and an appropriate graph!

29 Reminders Homework Packet #4 due Friday Quiz #4 on Friday
