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?
  • ANS:The pie chart is not appropriate .

    • Why do you think it's not appropriate?
    • The numbers are rounded to the nearest whole number ,thus it is not accurate and so, inappropriate for representing.

        • What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?
        • The other three's numbers are accurately displayed and is clearly shown .

  1. Your reasoning is based on accuracy in representating data (due to rounding off):

    If the figures given, after calculating result in exact figures (where no rounding off is necessary), would PIE graph still be appropriate then?

    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?
