eLearning Lesson 1 Task 1: Choice of Graphs
Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information?
I think the line graph is inappropriate to represent the information.
Why do you think it's not appropriate?
I think it is not appropriate as line graphs are used to represent time, not the types or kinds of whatever is being tested.
What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?
Bar Graphs are normally used to show the number for each type of whatever is being tested.
Pie Charts shows percentage or fraction of the number of types of the tested out of the total number.
Pictograms are pictorial versions of Bar Graphs. Since the Bar Graph is appropriate and Pictograms are a form of Bar Graphs, Pictograms are also appropriate.
