Steps in Graphing:
1) Determine the scale to be used for
the xaxis: determine the smallest and largest values to be graphed, find
the difference, then divide by the approximate number of spaces available on the
graph paper. Use a convenient spacing. Mark off the xaxis beginning
with the smallest number at the origin (not necessarily zero).
2) Repeat the same process for the
yaxis.
3) Clearly label the axes.
Indicate the variable represented and the unit of measurement.
4) Label the graph as a whole.
5) Plot the points.
6) Draw a smooth curve (not a jagged
line) which will average out experimental error.
