Excel Graph- Average Global Temperatures

Learning Goal: I can use Excel to create graphs that meaningfully displays given data.

My Graph

This is the data I used to make this graph:

The graph I chose was a line graph because a line graph shows change over time and it’s showing the changing temperatures.

From this data you can tell that the temperature didn’t go up that much throughout the years.

Using Excel for making graphs in class

data for graph3
this graph was the original copy from antsclass: antsclass




This type of graph is a line graph, a line graph is used to show change over time. The features of this graph are the temperatures ( on the vertical axis) and the years which are on the horizontal axis. This graph is the best option for this data because it shows the average global temperatures over the years of 1860, 1880, 1900, 1920, 1940, 1960, 1980, 2000 and line graphs are the best option for showing change over time.

Predict:  We predict it will be about patterns and shapes.

Clarify: We had nothing to clarify.

Big Question: How to figure out what each shape stood for.

Strategies: Look for and describe with a pattern or a rule, make a model, make a list.

Answer: 3 squares, 2 triangles & 1 circle  =  86              1 square, 2 triangles & 4 circles= 39

Summary: We found the activity a little bit challenging when we had to figure out which shape went with which number. We thought it was easier to work with the higher numbers first. There were a lot of other ways to work out the answer but we chose a way we all understood.
