3We know a bar chart should: * have a title.* have numbered and labelled axis.* have clear bars showing how much of something has been observed/recorded.* be numbered with sensible intervals.* answer questions about the data.
4A bar chart always has a title. It might also have a ‘legend’.A bar chart always has a title.Vertical axis (y). Always labelled and numbered.This shows what the colour of each bar represents.The height of the bars show how many of something was scored/recorded.Horizontal axis (x). Always labelled.
5How can we collect the information we need to construct a bar chart?
7A frequency chart is similar to a tally chart…except you just write the number instead of recording by tally!
