Name the Graph

Two quick resources I made last night for graphing and data management.  These relate to identifying the purpose of a graph, and understanding how a title can be a hint to what shape the data will take.  A good assessment piece to see if they get graphs.  There are two copies:

1) I have put titles at the bottom and the students have to match the title to the graph.  There may be more than one possible solution.  Great critical thinking skills required!

Name the Graph

2) the same copy as above, but with the titles taken out.  Now, the students have to think of their own original title for the graph that makes sense based on the data.

Try them out and share them.
