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?
      • Why do you think it's not appropriate?
      • What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?
I think Pie charts is not an appropriate choice to represent the information. This is because the results are rounded off to the nearest whole numbers. They are also in degrees, so it is difficult to read.

    The other 3 graphs shows numbers are easier to interpret and are not rounded off.

    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?
