How do we use spreadsheets to create graphs?

February 2, 2009

Aim: How do we use spreadsheets to create graphs?

Today, in class 702, we used spreadsheets to create a graph. First, went to microsoft excel spreadsheet. Then, we made a data. The way we did it was by putting all the activaties in one row and the budgets in another. We did 2 different types of graphs which were a circle graph and a bar graph. We were trying to see which graph graph represented the data better.

The graph that best showed the data was a bar graph. This is because the bar graph displayed the data. The circle graph only showed how the set of data is divided into parts. A line graph would not be an appropriate display because it only shows how a set of weather, such at weather increases and decreases, changes. This is what class 702 did today.
