Graphs

4/5P have been creating graphs in maths! We have entered data into Excel to create different data displays – pie charts, bar graphs, dot plots…

Here are just a few examples.

What do the graphs have in common?
Reflect on one graph and the data it represents – You might like to include: What was the most popular/least popular vote? How many people in total voted and how did you work this out? What type of graph is it? What is the difference between the most popular and least popular item?
Where have you seen graphs in real life?

  1. Hey class,

    We think that all the graphs are about our favourites. We also noticed that there are lots off different types of graphs that you can make.

  2. Hello everyone,
    The graphs are made by Exel.
    We are doing George’s and Mia’s graph:
    1) The least favourite activities are the Market and The Gaol.
    2) It is a pie graph.
    3) The most favourite activity is The Sky deck.
    4) They are spread apart a lot.
    5) We have seen graphs at school.

  5. Hi 45 P,
    The graphs all are showing favourite things, they are all made in Excel and They all show collected data.
    On Dylan and Alicia’s graph the favourite was the Skydeck, the least popular ones were Gaol, Market and Icehouse, 24 people in total voted and we worked it out by adding all of the totals together, It is a column graph and the most liked has 6 more votes then the least liked and we have seen graphs on blogs and for voting in different places.
    Happy Blogging 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  7. Hi everyone,

    We have picked Mia and George’s graph.
    We think the Gaol was the least favourite thing we did on camp and the favourite was the Sky deck. We think the graph is a pie graph and we like how it is set out. The lest is not liked as much as the favourite. We think we might see one in an office, High school or a classroom.

    Bye for now,

  8. Hi 4/5P,
    All these graphs were made on excel.
    On number 3 the favourite camp activity was the Eureka Skydeck.
    The least favourite camp activity was the Old Melbourne Gaol.
    Its a pie graph so it does not show the value.
    We cant tell you the amount of votes between the most favourite and least favourite.
    At school and Olivia has also seen a few while making them at her house.

    Bye 🙂

  9. Hello everyone,

    Making graphs are fun and exciting. We are going to answer all the questions now.

    1. What do all the graphs have in common? – All the information from the graphs is from the people in our class (4/5P). The graphs are about our favourite things.

    2. What is the most popular/least popular vote? – We chose Olivia S and Alani”s graph. Their most popular vote was cooking and other. Their least popular vote was sleeping.

    3. How many people in total voted and how did you work it out? – We chose Alicia and Dylan’s graph. In total 24 people voted for their graph. We worked it out by writing each vote from each category down on a piece of paper then added them all together.

    4. What type of graph is it? – We chose Mia and George’s graph. Their type of graph is a pie graph.

    5. What is the difference between the most popular and the least popular item? – We chose Tayla-Jade and Natasha’s graph. The most popular item is the rubbers on 5 and the gel pens and Smelly textas on 1, so the difference between them both is 4.

    6. Where have you seen graphs in real life? – Grayson has never seen a graph in real life.n Tayla-Jade has seen a few line graphs on my mum and dads bills.

    Talk to you soon,
    Grayson and Tayla-Jade 🙂

  10. Hi guys,

    Alicia: We reckon the graphs are awesome!

    Nick: the graphs have nice presentation.

    Alicia: The skydeck was really popular.

    Nick: The rubbers were the most popular and the least popular is the gel pens and the smelly textas from Smiggle.

    Alicia: 13 people voted in the Smiggle graph.

    Nick: The Smiggle graph is a column graph.

    Alicia: There is a 4 vote difference in the miggle graph.

    Nick: we have both never seen one in real life that we can recall.

    Bye for now
    Alicia and Nick
