### Constructing Graphs

Created by Scott Mangum

• 3b - Draw and label bar, line, circle graphs, and pictographs.
• 3c - Gather, organize, and analyze data to create tables, charts, and graphs.
• 3d - Incorporate appropriate technology and manipulatives to explore data collection, organization, and interpretation.
Why construct graphs?
• Graphs are visual aids that help people understand information.
Let’s make a graph.
• Take a survey of the information you need.
• A survey is a tool you use to organize information.
• You need questions that gather information.
• Example - How many students in 1st and 2nd period like chocolate, vanilla or strawberry ice cream?

Surveys, Line Plots, and Frequency Tables

SURVEYS

We have 30 students in 1st period class.

• 15 students like chocolate ice cream.
• 10 students like vanilla ice cream.
• 5 students like strawberry ice cream.

We have 25 students in 2nd period class.

• 10 students like chocolate ice cream.
• 11 students like vanilla ice cream.
• 4 students like strawberry ice cream.
After you have gathered your information you can start making your graph.

You must follow the five steps to making a graph.

Step 1 to graphing.
• Draw a subject and scale axis.
• Axis are the horizontal and vertical lines that start the graph.
Step 2 to graphing.
• Label the subject axis.
• The subject axis is the axis that contains the subject of the survey.

• Choose a scale and label the axis.
• The scale axis is the axis with the number scale on it.
• The scale should have reasonable numbers. Example 2, 5, 10. Depending on how big the numbers are on the scale.

Step 4 to graphing.
• Label, draw and shade the bars.
• Abbreviations are letters used to shorten a word.

Ice Cream Preferences

• Make a key.
• Make sure the colors in the key match the colors in the graph.

Practice
• Survey the different colors of shirts in the classroom.
• Put the information in a line plot and then a frequency table.
• Build a graph with the information.
