Today Mr. Harbeck wants us to tell give him 3 things what we know about graphing and what we could improve on.

The 3 things i know about graphing is that:

- You can use different graphs like circle graph, pictograph graph, bargraph graph, double bar graph, line graph, and double line graph.

These are the common graphs we use:

a.)circle graph- it means that circle is divided into a sectors. The percentage of the circle should equals to 100.
b.)pictograph graph- it means a picture representing a word or an idea.
c.)bar graph-it is an excellent way to show results that are one time, that aren't continuous .
d.)line graph-it is most useful in displaying data or information that changes continuously over time. It means that it is really good of showing when something is improving or the changes of something.

-The other thing I know about graphing is you can misrepresent it by shortening the y-axis, make the bars bigger, and you can distort the visuals.

-The last thing i know is that you can use a tally chart for organizing a data.

What i could improve in my test is that:

-I should use a tally chart for organizing the data.
-also add up the numbers so that I know that I used all the numbers.
