Interpreting Data

Directions: Make a graph that shows a possible result of 7 students’ favorite color.


How can we tell when a student likes a color?
How can we tell how many students like a color?
How can we tell the total number of students who were surveyed?


There are many answers to this problem including some that would go off the graph. For example:

2 like blue, 2 like red, 3 like yellow (on the graph)
3 like blue, 3 like red, 1 like yellow (on the graph)
7 like blue, 0 like red, 0 like yellow (off the graph)
