Graphing in Science (Tues 09.09.2008) Catalyst: Name and draw as many types of graphs as you can!

Agenda Reminders Graphing in Science Graphing Practice

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

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

Graphing in Science 09.09.2008..

What are the parts of a graph?

Title X-axis Y-axis

Graphing in Science 09.09.2008 Graph Parts Title Y-Axis | | |__________________________ X-axis

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

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

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

Graphing in Science 09.09.2008 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 #)

Example Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW 398 480 5.460 7.540 820

What is the IV? Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW 398 480 5.460 7.540 820

What is the DV? Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW 398 480 5.460 7.540 820

What would the title of the graph be? Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW 398 480 5.460 7.540 820

Example Average Weekly Television Watching in Hours % Students Turning in HW 398 480 5.460 7.540 820

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

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 510 13 15 20

Quick Practice (Left Page) Fertilizer Amount in (mg) - IV Plant Height in (cm) - DV 510 13 15 20

Graph Types Vs.

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

Graphing in Science 09.09.2008 Graph Types - Line Graph - Use when the IV changes amount (day #, amount of fertilizer, etc)

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

Graphing in Science 09.09.2008 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.)

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

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