Introduction:
How Do I Use the New Create A Graph
Getting Started . . .

* Begin by logging on to the Internet and going to http://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph if you are not already there.

* A screen will appear with several options for what type of graph you want to build. If you are unsure of which type of graph you should use, read the “How Do I choose Which Graph to Use” section of the tutorial. Then select the appropriate graph by clicking the icon.

* Once you have selected your graph, take a moment to read the Help menu on the left side of your screen. It will give you some tips about making your graph.

“Design”

Once you have selected which type of graph you want to use, you are asked to select several different settings for the layout of your graph. You can always go back and change, so try different options to see which works best.

* For line graphs and area graphs, you will be asked to select a background color for your graph, the color you want the grid lines to be, the number of gridlines you want (how many segments do you want the y-axis separated into), whether you want the graph to be 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional, and where you want the legend for your graph to be.

* For bar graphs, you will be asked to select the same things as above, but you will also need to select what kind of bars you want to have.

* For pie charts, you will need to select what kind of filler you want the slices to have in addition to the general information. Notice you do not have to select information about grid lines, because a pie chart has no x or y-axis.

* For X-Y plots, you will need to select which type of plot you wish to have in addition to the general information.
