Thought-Process to Discover Knowledge

Welcome to nubtrek.

Books and other education websites provide "matter-of-fact" knowledge. Instead, nubtrek provides a thought-process to discover knowledge.

In each of the topic, the outline of the thought-process, for that topic, is provided for learners and educators.

With simple examples, the bar-graph representation of Data is explained.

pictograph with scaling In the earlier lessons, Data representation using tally marks, table, and pictograph were explained. These representations were useful to understand details like which data-value is large, which data-values are comparable , etc.

The data can be given in a spatially laid out visual form. It is widely used in newspapers and other publications. bar-graph of data Consider the data: Number of students who took a given fruit.

orange `2`
apple `2`
mango `5`
banana `1`

The figure depicts a "bargraph" of the data.

The word "bar-graph" means: data represented with bars. The representation can be with horizontal or vertical bars.

bar-graph

bar-graph of data Earlier, we learned about scaling in pictographs. Scaling was introduced to represent large data-values.

The bar graphs have a similar problem. The numbers marked in vertical axis will be too close for large values.

Let us consider the data:

Orange : `15`
Apple : `10`
Mango : `30`
Banana : `5`scaling in bargraph Instead of marking each of the values in the vertical axis, the values are marked in increment of `5`. This is illustrated in the figure.

Let us consider the data:

Orange : `15`
Apple : `12`
Mango : `28`
Banana : `5`scaling in bargraph with partial representation The number of apples `12` is represented with a vertical bar of height `12`.

Similarly the number of mangoes `28` is represented with a vertical bar of height `28`.

Bar-Graph : bargraph of data A spatial representation of data with bars in vertical and horizontal axis.
