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 remaining 3 graphs are appropriate?

Line graphs are used to display information over a period of time and weather forecasts do not use line graphs as the information needed for weather forecasts is the forecast of the day itself not over a period of days. The bar graph, pictogram and pie chart are more suitable for this as it displays information recorded in that moment and not over a period of time.
