Tables, Charts, and Graphs.
To make a data table:
1. Draw a data table as shown below.
2. Give your table a title that identifies your variables ("My Week's Intake of Nutrients").
3. Label the column on the left as the independent variable (Nutrient nutrient /nu·tri·ent/ (noo´tre-int)
1. nourishing; providing nutrition.
2. a food or other substance that provides energy or building material for the survival and growth of a living organism. ). Underneath, list each type of nutrient you used for the independent variable (Calcium, Fat, Sodium, Iron).
4. Label the columns to the right as the dependent variable (Total %Daily Value). Draw boxes under these columns in which you can record the results of each trial for each activity (Monday Monday: see week. , Tuesday, etc.).
5. Include a column at the far right to record the average %DV for each nutrient. To calculate the average %DV, add the %DV for each nutrient, then divide the total %DV by the number of days.
My Week's Intake of Nutrients Nutrient Total %Daily Value Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Saturday Calcium 40 50 120 70 150 70 Fat 70 170 200 90 140 160 Sodium 60 90 110 60 160 80 Iron 30 40 50 30 40 60 Nutrient Total %Daily Value Sunday Average Calcium 60 80 Fat 80 130 Sodium 70 90 Iron 30 40
To make a line graph In graph theory, the line graph L(G) of an undirected graph G is a graph such that
1. On graph paper, draw a set of axes axes
[L., Gr.] plural of axis. The straight lines which intersect at right angles and on which graphs are drawn. Usually the horizontal axis is the x-axis and the vertical one the y-axis. Called also axes of reference. (x and y).
2. Give your line graph a title ("My Calcium Intake Over Time").
3. Label the x-axis with your independent variable (Days of the Week) with the values of the independent variable (Monday, Tuesday, etc.).
4. Label the vertical y-axis with your dependent variable (Total %Daily Value). Place a scale that includes all the values of your dependent variable along the y-axis.
5. Plot a point on the graph for each piece of data. Example:The total %DV of calcium on Monday is 40%. To locate this point in your graph, draw an imaginary Imaginary can refer to:
See also: Horizontal from the 40% mark on the y-axis. Plot the point where the lines intersect In a relational database, to match two files and produce a third file with records that are common in both. For example, intersecting an American file and a programmer file would yield American programmers. . When you've plotted the points for all your data, connect the points.
To make a bar graph:
1. On graph paper, draw a set of axes (x and y).
2. Give your bar graph a title ("My Average Intake of Nutrients").
3. Label the horizontal (x) axis with your independent variable (Type of Nutrient), including the nutrients you used for the independent variable (Calcium, Fat, Sodium, Iron).
4. Label the vertical (y) axis with your dependent variable (Average %Daily Value) and a scale that marks the values of the dependent variable.
5. For each independent variable, draw a solid bar to the height of the corresponding value of the dependent variable. Example: The average %DV of calcium consumed con·sume
v. con·sumed, con·sum·ing, con·sumes
1. To take in as food; eat or drink up. See Synonyms at eat.
a. is 80%. Draw a bar above the "calcium" label on the x-axis to the 80%DV mark on the y-axis.
To make a pie chart A graphical representation of information in which each unit of data is represented as a pie-shaped piece of a circle. See business graphics. :
1. Draw a circle with a compass.
2. Give your pie chart a title ("Class Rating In Calcium Intake").
3. Mark the center with a point; this is where each pie "slice," or wedge, will start.
4. Measure a wedge for each level of the independent variable (High, Average, Low, or Really Low). First, convert your data from percentages to angle degrees. Example: If 40% of classmates Classmates can refer to either:
Instrument for constructing and measuring plane angles. The simplest protractor is a semicircular disk marked in degrees from 0° to 180°. A more complex protractor, for plotting position on navigation charts, is called a three-arm protractor, or station at the center point of the circle. Mark 0 [degrees] and 140 [degrees] angles with points on the edge of the circle. Draw a line from these points to the center of the circle.
5. Label the wedge (include its percentage).
6. Measure your next wedge from the edge of the first. When finished, the entire circle should be filled, and the angles of the wedges should add up to 360 [degrees].
