**Now that you know what a Bar Chart/Graph is, you need to ensure that when you create one, it includes the following items:**

1. Title

2. Label on the y axis (vertical)

3. Scale on the y axis

4. Label on the x axis (horizontal)

5. Items/categories on the x axis

6. Bars that are created using a ruler and are slightly spaced apart.

Lets see if you can score 6/6 for your graph!

**Collecting Data and imputing into a Line Graph**

**As a group, decide on which of the following two you are going to record:**

- distance of a standing start jump

- hand span

- circumference of head

- circumference of wrist

- length of thumb

- distance from shoulder to elbow

Is there a connection between your data? Plot your data on a line graph.

**Line/dot plots**

**Comparing different graphs to make decisions**

**Sometimes you will need to look at a number of different types of data, understand what each graph is communicating and how to use that to answer a specific question. This includes understanding what data is important, what data is irrelevant and how you will explain your understanding.**
