eLearning Lesson 1 Task 1: Choice of Graphs

    • Among the 4 graphs (Line Graph, Bar Graphs, Pictograms, Pie Charts), identify ONE graph that is NOT an appropriate choice to represent the information?
      • Why do you think it's not appropriate?
      • What makes you think the 3 remaining graphs are appropriate?

For the pie chart, it is not necessary to state the percentage of the areas that are experiencing certain weathers. The viewers only need to know the number of areas that are experiencing the certain weathers, not the percentage. The pie chart is not suitable because the viewers do not need to calculate to see how many countries are experiencing the different whether, they would want it shown to them clearly.

The 3 remaining graphs state the number of areas that are experiencing the different weathers instead of the percentage, so they are more suitable.
