3 things you should know about graphing:

1. There are 6 different types of graphs you can use.

Bar Graph
  • A bar graph shows the amounts of things.
Double Bar Graph
  • A double bar graphs shows 2 peoples or things amounts.

Line Graph
  • A line graph shows things that happen over time.

Double Line Graph
  • A double line graph shows 2 things that happen in different periods of time.

  • A pictograph is just like a bar graph, but on it's side. They can both show the same information, but the pictograph just uses pictures.

Circle Graph
  • A circle graph shows the same information, but in fractions and percents.
2. With graphs you can show different types of data. You can show data over time with line graphs, percents with circle graphs and the number of something with bar graphs or pictographs.

3. You can also make a bar graph mislead, and look like it's showing different information, but it's actually showing the same data.
