Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information?

I think that the Pie Chart is not an appropriate choice to represent the information.

Why do you think it's not appropriate?

I think that it is not appropriate because the percentages are rounded off, and the pie chart does not give the exact number.

What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?

I think that the remaining graphs are accurate because they do not round off the figure and they give the exact number.

Based on your first reason, based accuracy in representating data due to rounding off:

ReplyDeleteIf 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?
