7th Grade Math - Line Graphs

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Line graphs, or line charts, are great for taking tables of data and visualizing it. They make it easier to see patterns, structure and any surprising things that may come out of the data. You'll see line graphs utilized often in the real world as it is much more powerful to display data visually instead of publishing just the data set. In business, trends are often shared in some form of a line graph. You may have seen this represented on television whenever an executive is giving a presentation and pulls out a line graph to show a particular trend. This is because it is a much quicker way to make an impact with data when all a person needs to do is look at a chart.

In today's free 7th grade math video, Professor Burger demonstrates how to read line graphs, how to use a graph to estimate data, and how to create a double line graph to compare two data sets together.
