1
Interpreting graphs Objective: To be able to read and plot graphs of real-life problems

2
You should already know: How to draw a straight line from an equation, How to label & read independent & dependent variables, What gradient means, How to read information from graphs.

3
What does it show? Firstly, look at the axis to see what the graph represents.

4
ALWAYS READ THE LABELS ON THE AXIS! The bus stop queue

5
Drawing graphs of real-life situations In your exams you may be asked to complete, or draw, graphs to represent given situations.

6
Plot a distance time-graph to represent your journey to and from the club. You are at home getting ready to go out to your stamp collecting club. You leave your house and jog the 1000m to the club. You arrive 5 minutes later. You exchange stamps and chat for 1 hour, then leave for home. It takes you 10 minutes. Example 1.

1.Choose a suitable scale for each axis. You are at home getting ready to go out to your stamp collecting club. You leave your house and jog the 1000m to the club. You arrive 5 minutes later. You exchange stamps and chat for 1 hour, then leave for home. It takes you 10 minutes. Distance from home (m) Time (minutes) 200 400 600 800 1000 0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 2. Decide how many points to plot. You are at home getting ready to go out to your stamp collecting club. You leave your house and jog the 1000m to the club. You arrive 5 minutes later. You exchange stamps and chat for 1 hour, then leave for home. It takes you 10 minutes. 3. Draw the graph with suitable accuracy 4.

On the way, you stop at the local shop for 5 minutes to buy some sweets. You arrive at your friend’s house 1.5km, and 15 minutes, after you left home. You stay with your friend for 2 hours before leaving. It takes you 20 minutes to get home.

Which graph?

12
Sketching line graphs Sketch a line graph to show the depth of water against time when water runs steadily from a tap into these jars. Time Depth of water

13
Write a short situation (like the stamp-club example) and give it to your partner to create an accurate line graph of. Draw a simple container and ask your partner to sketch a line graph to show how the depth of water would change with time if filled by a steadily flowing tap. Challenge
