```					Displaying Data: Graphs
Sometimes, it is easier to understand
data if it is organized and displayed.
You can organize data by:
 Using Line Plots
 Describing Data (mean, median,mode,
and range)
 Making Charts or Graphs (bar
graphs,circle graphs,pictographs,line
graphs, histographs, etc.)
Charts:
Line Plots
 Line plots are diagrams that organize
data on a number line
 If your data is numerical, one way to
show it would be with a line plot

Line graphs
 Line graphs are
good for showing
changes in data
over time when
working with dates.
 Double line graphs
even more data and
compare data.
Circle graphs/Pie Charts
   Circle or pie charts
are another way to
show data, and
compare data to
percentages or
fractions of a whole.
Pictographs
 Pictographs are
often used to show
data in newspapers
and magazines
because they get
 Each picture
represents a specific
number of data.
