# Line Graphs

Line Graph: a graph that shows information that is connected in some way (such as change over time)

You are learning facts about dogs, and each day you do a short test to see how good you are. These are the results:

Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 Day 4 Table: Facts I got Correct 3 4 12 15

And here is the same data as a Line Graph:

You seem to be improving!

You can create graphs like that using our Data Graphs (Bar, Line and Pie) page.

Or we can draw them ourself!

Let's draw a Line Graph for this data:

Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Table: Ice Cream Sales \$410 \$440 \$550 \$420 \$610 \$790 \$770

And let's make the vertical scale go from \$0 to \$800, with tick marks every \$200

Draw a vertical scale with tick marks

Label the tick marks, and give the scale a label

Draw a horizontal scale with tick marks and labels

Put a dot for each data value

Connect the dots and give the graph a title

Make sure to have:

• Vertical scale with tick marks and labels
• Horizontal scale with tick marks and labels
• Data points connected by lines
• A Title
