									      Rules for creating Charts and Graphs in Science

Charts:

Column for the Manipulating or          Column for the Responding or
independent variable. This info will go dependent variable. This info will go
on the X axis (MIX)                     on the Y axis
                                        (DRY)



Data here include the unit              Data here include the unit



Example: An investigation was conducted to see what happens to the height
measured in centimeters of Wisconsin Fast Plants when 0, 1, and 2 of the
plants cotyledons were removed. (A cotyledon is the fleshy part of a seed,
sometimes called a seed leaf)

Identify the manipulating or independent variable:




Identify the responding or dependent variable:




Complete the chart:
Add a title that tells about the manipulating variable and the responding
variable.

Add labels and units for the MV and the RV



Graphs:

Two important things to remember DRY MIX and TAILS

      D – Dependent                             M – Manipulated
      R – Responding                            I – Independent
      Y – Y-axis                                X – X-axis
