eLearning Lesson 1 Task 1: Choice of Graphs by Ishani Saha [04]


In the Interactive Lab activity, you were asked to ponder...
Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information?
Answer: The Pie Chart
Why do you think it's not appropriate?
Answer: It is because the answer presented in the Pie Chart is not exact as it is rounded off to the nearest whole number and thus this might not give us the actual value that we want.
What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?
it gives us accurate information and is easier to interpret.

  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?

    On the other hand, you are right to point out that sometimes, it's challenging for us to find an exact value when when given a pie chart.

    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?
