Bar Graphs, Pictographs, Pie Charts and Line Graphs

Bar Graphs, Pictographs, Pie Charts, Line Graphs and more. These are the variety of graphs that are indispensable when it comes to plotting and interpreting data.

With bar graphs, students can compare different groups. For intance, a class vote can be taken on a favorite ice-cream flavor for instance, or the best movie genre. A survey helps record findings which are then plotted on a bar graph. 

Comparisons can then be made at a glance. These graphs are ideal for tracking changes for a longer period of time.

Pictographs do the same, but the only difference being – with picture symbols.

Line graphs, also known as line charts are useful to record changes over time. For example, the fluctuations in temperature measured by degrees celsius or fahrenheit during the day can be plotted on a line chart.

Line plots on the other hand display data using a number line. These graphs are also also called dot plots. The frequency of given criteria arising is marked by Xs above the line. 

Interpreting a line plot involves counting the number of Xs above the line to study and compare given subject criteria.

Pie charts show data too in an equally visual way.

The pie slices of a pie chart show relative sizes of data that can be easily analyzed.
