# 12/3/03 Math warm-up

## 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.

## 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

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

## 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%
