WALT – Draw a bar chart

 

This week we have already presented our data (information) as a pictogram.

 

Another way to present our data is in the form of a column chart (or bar chart). 

 

Have a look at the web link below, (Constructing bar charts) here you will learn how to draw a bar chart accurately using your data.  

 

When you draw a bar chart you will need two axis.  (X and Y)  Remember the X axis is the one at the bottom (horizontal) and the y is the one that is vertical. 

 

   

 

You need to label your axis (Y: Number of times each vowel was used) and you add numbers in intervals or steps. These need to be even (go up in even steps of 2,4, 5, 6 – you can choose). 

 

                     

  Have a look at my example in the resources area

 

Now your turn to try, using the data you collected on Monday, present it in the form of a bar graph.

 

Remember to label your axis and give your chart a title.  

 

When you have drawn your chart complete the worksheet found in resources. 

 

Choose your challenge (don't always do the easy one!)
