During this unit, you will learn about many different types of graphs, which graphs are most appropriate for specific data, and when graphs are misleading. For instance, a graph can misrepresent the data if it does not provide a proper representation of the data, which can be caused by the vertical scale being too small or too large, or by not starting at 0. Additionally, if a graph does not have the proper labels or if data are left out, this can also result in a graph that does not properly represent the data.

During this unit, you will learn about many different types of graphs, which graphs are most appropriate for specific data types, and how to create graphs in Excel. Remember that when building a graph in Excel to fully label the graph and to think about what information the graph should show the viewer.

A second important objective in this Discussion is to work together as a group or team to share, compare, and improve.

Part 1:

  1. Choose any Excel Discussion dataset. From that dataset, select any qualitative variable and create an appropriate graph that describes that variable. Use Excel to do this. Be sure to fully label the graph. 2. From the same dataset, select any quantitative variable and create an appropriate graph that describes that variable. Use Excel to do this. Be sure to fully label the graph. 3. Next, open a Word Document. Paste both of your graphs into the Word Document. Include under each graph, the name of the dataset you chose, the name of the variable you are graphing, and why the graph you chose is appropriate. Attach the Word document to your main post.
