In the next few posts, we will introduce different kinds of graphs. These graphs allow you to visually represent data in ways that emphasize different aspects of the data. In preparation, let's look at some data represented with different graphs:

Tables of Lemonades Sold

$$\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{ |c|c| }
\hline
Date & Lemonades Sold\\
\hline 7/2/19 & 1 \\
\hline 7/3/19 & 2 \\

\hline 7/4/19 & 5 \\

\hline 7/5/19 & 2 \\

\hline 7/6/19 & 3\\

\hline 7/7/19 & 2\\

\hline 7/8/19 & 5\\

\hline 7/9/19 & 4 \\

\hline 7/10/19 & 3\\

\hline 7/11/19 & 3\\

\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
$$

Here are some of the difference kinds of graphs you may encounter:

Bar graph:

Circle graph:

Box plot:

  

Scatterplot:

In subsequent posts, we will talk more about how to read each of these graphs.
