Word Bank for 6th grade Graphing unit

offers a short explanation of what is in your graph. This helps the reader identify what they are about to look at. Graph Title
In line graphs, the __axis runs horizontally (flat). Typically, this axis has numbers representing different time periods or names of things being compared. X-Axis Label
In line graphs, the __axis runs vertically (up and down). Typically, this axis has numbers for the amount of stuff being measured. Y-Axis
explains where you found the information that is in your graph. It is important to give credit to those who collected your data! Source
defines the number of items and groups of items Data set
tells what each line represents. Just like on a map, the legend helps the reader understand what they are looking at. Legend
the information contained in the graph Data
are used to track changes over short and long periods of time. Line Graph
are best to use when you are trying to compare parts of a whole. They do not show changes over time. Pie Chart
are used to compare things between different groups or to track changes over time. Bar Graph
are used to determine relationships between the two different things. The x-axis is used to measure one event (or variable) and the y-axis is used to measure the other. X-Y Plot
an object, event, idea, feeling, time period, or any other type of category you are trying to measure. Variable
The steepness of a line expressed as a ratio, using any two points on the line. Slope
standing upright at a right angle to the horizon Vertical
parallel to the horizon; goes across Horizontal
the pattern of values that makes up one axis on a graph Scale
the difference between the least and greatest values in the set Range
a way to organize data that allows you to easily see patterns and relationships Table
the value or values that occur most often Mode
a pair of numbers (x,y) used to locate a point on a coordinate grid Ordered pair
the gap between the numerical values of one axis on a graph Interval
tells the number of times an event, category or group occurs Frequency table
