### BAR GRAPHS Using data to make graphs

```BAR GRAPHS
Using data to make graphs
WHAT IS DATA? It is information.
An example:
In my fifth grade class we took a pizza lovers survey.
We learned that ten kids liked pepperoni pizza best.
Nine kids liked sausage pizza best.
Seven kids liked cheese pizza best.
This information is called
DATA.
If a mom was planning a pizza party for the class,
she would need the pizza lovers survey DATA.
I need to order 10 pepperoni, 9 sausage and 7
cheese pizzas.
Your report card is another example of data.

KIDS HAVE PETS:
Salomon asked the kids in his class what kind of pet they have.
This is the data he collected.
Building a bar graph using this data helps us easily compare the number
of pets kids have. All four (4) parts of a bar graph must be present for the
graph to be complete.
Title
Scale
Bars
Labels
1. which animal most kids have as pets?.
2. Which two kinds of animals are owned by the same number of kids?
3. How many kids have either a dog or a cat?
4. The numbers up the side of the bar graph are called the ________.
HOW CAN YOU COLLECT THE INFORMATION
NEEDED TO CONSTRUCT A BAR CHART?
BY MAKING A FREQUENCY
TABLE FIRST!
A Frequency table is a table that lists each item in
a data set with the number of times it occurs.

1. Ask 10 students the following information and
complete the table.
FLAVOUR
TALLY
Chicken
Cheese
Mayonnaise
Barbeque
Bacon
Insert any other flavours here
2. Construct your own frequency table
CRISPS
TALLY
FREQUENCY
3. Make a a bar graph showing the favourite crisps in
our class.
