To make a data table. (Tables, Charts, And Graphs).

1 Draw a blank data table.

2 Give your table a title that identifies your variables ("My Week's Physical Activity Log").

3 Label the column on the left as the independent variable (Activity). Underneath, list types of activity you used for the independent variable (Walking, Basketball, Swimming, Dancing, etc.).

4 Label the columns to the right as the dependent variable (Minutes). Draw boxes under these columns in which you can record the results of each trial for each activity (Monday, Tuesday, etc.).

5 Include columns at the far right to record the total and the average number of minutes for each activity. To calculate the average, add the minutes for each activity, then divide the total by the number of days in a week: seven.
