A series of worksheets that focus on understanding graphs that we use in science to better grasps results of data that has been collected.

In science we are trying to look for a truth or fact that can be repeated. Graphs and chart are widely used as the standard to take data that has been collected and find trends or relationships between the factors we are studying. In all the cases we present the data has already been collected for you. You are asked to make sense of the data by either creating a graph or analyzing a graph that is given to you. You will be introduced to bar, line, and pie graphs. More importantly, you will be lead to understand the meaning and use of each graph type.

These worksheets present the concept of graphing in a science-based setting. At first, we will begin to use graphs to sum up our observations and then we will move on the making educated well devised guesses based on the data that we have released on graphs. Each activity will consist of several worksheets and an answer key that may span two or three worksheets, at times. We also have training exercises for students that may have trouble understanding fundamental graphs and their use within these environments. Once students get some time and repetition with these science graphing worksheets they will find what procedure they should use for interpretation. The worksheets start out simple in the frame of understanding basic data collection processes. We then move on to using all forms of graphs and charts that are commonly used in scientific analysis.
