This is the Study Guide made by Block A: 2013

Keywords to know:

- Interval
- Trend
- Types of graphs
- Bar graph
- Double bar graph
- Pictograph
- Line graph

- Circle graph Percentage
- Horizontal axis (x-axis)

Things we need to know

- What is each graph best at?
- What are their advantages
- What are their disadvantages
- What kinds of data does each show

- How to draw a graph
- Choose a scale for the graph (especially on the vertical axis)
- How to make the intervals all the same size

- What makes a graph misleading
- Explain how a graph is misleading

- How to critique a graph
- Does the graph support the data
- Is the title/conclusion supported by the graph
- Does it have misleading features?

- How to use a circle graph to make predictions using the percents
- example: if you spend 34% of your allowance on candy, and you're monthly allowance is $20, how much should you spend on candy?

Things we might be asked:

- Draw a graph to show data
- choose correct intervals on each axis
- choose a scale that will show the graph best
- choose an appropriate title for the graph

- Redraw a misleading graph so that it is no longer misleading
- Critique a graph
- Is this the best type of graph to show the data and/or conclusion
