BOB the Builder and Harvey's Scribepost for October 6, 2009

3 Things I know about graphing.

1) Different Kinds of Graphs
-Bar Graph
-Circle Graph
-Line Graph
-Picto Graph

2) The advantages and disadvantages of the graphs

-Bar Graph
It's best for showing data that doesn't have an ending number (where you have to stop)
-Circle Graph
It's best for showing data that's part of a whole.
-Line Graph
This graph is best for when you're keeping track of data (Like how many shirts you sold for the past month)
-Picto graph
I think that the picto graph is like a bar graph, but in a easier to read and make form

3)Distorting Data
-The size of the bars
Not the height, but the width. Height is cheating so don't do it okay?
-Size of the pictures
Make the one that you like the size of the moon and the one that youdon't like the size of a pixel.
-Manipulating the colors
Make all the other ones one shade of color and the one that you like the 'opposite' color. (red=blue)
-Breaks and Intervals
add a break so you can start on any number on the graph and use Intervals to make the bars bigger or smaller

What I know now that could improve my test...

For starters, I could have done this test on the weekend instead of, whatever. And as for the test part, I should have probably coloured it, and added labels and title. And if I had a chance to write the paragraph, I would make it 3-4 sentences long.

Sorry Mr. H :(

Great job. Good use of colours. Under your different types of graphs, don't forget to add double line graph and double bar graph!
