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? Pie Charts
    • Why do you think it's not appropriate? PIe Charts are supposed to be used to describe part of a whole, not frequency.
    • What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate? They all can be used to describe frequency.

  1. You are right to point out that pie chart is not a good choice if we were to use it to represent frequency if NUMBERS were to be reported.

    Points to ponder...
    What kind of information does PIE chart usually provide?
    Does each type of graph serve a different purpose or it doesn't matter?
