Graphing Your Results

  • Review your data. Try to look at the results of your experiment with a critical eye. Ask yourself these questions:
    • Is it complete, or did you forget something?
    • Do you need to collect more data?
    • Did you make any mistakes?
  • Calculate an average for the different trials of your experiment, if appropriate.
  • Make sure to clearly label all tables and graphs. Include the units of measurement(volts, inches, grams, etc.).It is preferrd that you use SI (metric) units.
  • Place your independent variable on the x-axis of your graph and thedependent variable on the y-axis. (these headings are from your variables and controls work sheets completed in class prior to your experiment)

Create a graph link Use the link to create a graph of your results. I will be assisiting you at school with this-which type of graph works best for your data. Printers at school are black and white. If you would like to have a color copy of your graph (recommended) send in a flash drive and we can save the graph for you to print at home on your color printer or at Staples or other store. You can also email image to yourself in google chrome.
