Draw an example of each a line graph,


bar graph, and a circle graph.
(without exact numbers) Label it.
When would you use a line graph?
When would you use a circle graph?

Circle Graphs
Circle graphs are mostly used to
compare percentages, or a whole
Also known as pie charts.

Steps to create a Circle Graph


Classify or sort your items or parts.
2. Analyze data into a frequency chart.
You dont have to use the tally marks.
3. Count up total number of items or parts.
4. Write fractions comparing each part to
the total.
1.

Steps to create a Circle Graph


5. Convert fraction into percent.
6. Draw circle and represented portions
of the pie to equal the percents
figured.
7. Label the circle graph: Title,
item/part per pie piece with the %.
You may want to use a key to show the
raw data.

Circle Graph Example


You have a bag of M&M candies and
you want to know how many M&Ms
there are of each color and you are
asked to show the data in a circle
graph.
Raw Data: 20 brown, 120 red, 100
green, 80 yellow, 20 orange, 60 blue

Circle Graph Example


Your data has already been given to you.
2. Table your data:
Color of M&M
Amount
Red
120
Green 100
Yellow 80
Blue
60
Orange
20
Brown 20
1.

3. Total M&M = 400

Circle Graph Example


4. Write fractions to compare parts to

total:
Red 120
400

Green 100
400

Yellow 80
400

Blue 60
400

Orange 20
400

Brown 20
400

Circle Graph Example


5. Convert fractions to percent
Red 120 = N
12 = N
6=N
N=40
400 100 40 100 20 100 or 40%
Green 100=N
1=N
400 100 4 100
N=25 or 25%
Yellow 80 = N
8=N
400 100 40 100
N=20 or 20%
Blue
60 = N
6=N
3=N
400 100 40 100 20 100 N=15 or 15%
Brown & 20 = N
2=N
1 =N
Orange 400 100 40 100 20 100 N=5 or 5%
