BOB for Graphing

3 things I learned about graphing are:1) The different types of graphs and what they are best for:

Bar Graph

-bar graphs are best for comparing data across categories

Double Bar Graph

- double bar graphs are best for comparing two sets of data across categories

Circle Graph

- circle graphs are best for comparing categories to the whole using percents

- the sum of the percents in a circle graph is 100%

Line Graph

- line graphs are best for showing changes in data over time

Pictograph

- pictographs are best for comparing data that can be easily counted and represented using symbols

2) The correct terms:

3) To distort a graph

- use an axis break

- change the sizes

- make one stick out using colour

Something I need to improve on, that I didn't do on the assessment is that I need to explain the trend and make a prediction with the conclusion from the graph.
