Key Facts & Information
At the end of the lesson, the student will be able to draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set. With this knowledge, the student will be able to do the necessary operations concerning the data shown in the graphs.
A Note for the Teacher
When dealing with picture and bar graphs, take note of the following:
- A picture graph is similar to a bar graph because its independent variables are on the x-axis and its dependent variables are on the y-axis.
- Remember that data in picture graphs are represented by symbols.
- Remember that data in bar graphs are read through different heights of bars.
We learned that measurement data can be generated into different representations such as depicting it in a line plot. To recall, the most distinct use of line plot is to show values of data through a number line.
There are other examples of representations of data. The picture and bar graphs are examples of visual representations of data.
A picture graph contains the following:
- A picture/symbol/icon that is equivalent to a certain value
- The x-axis usually indicates the independent variables of the data
- The y-axis usually indicates the dependent variable or the quantity
The picture graph above is derived from the data in the table below. Notice the values of each category are depicted as an icon having a certain amount. When dealing with picture graphs, numbers are shown in symbols.
A bar graph, on the other hand, contains the following:
- The x-axis usually indicates the independent variables of the data.
- The y-axis usually indicates the dependent variable or the quantity.
- Different lengths of bars wherein its height (value) is read in the y axis.
The bar graph above is derived from the data in the previous table. Notice the values of each category are depicted into different lengths of bars having a certain amount. When dealing with bar graphs, numbers are shown in lengths of rectangles.
With this knowledge, we can apply picture and bar graphs in reading and solving data.
