Line Graphs Flashcards

1️⃣ Familiarise yourself with the flashcards:

  • Look through all the flashcards to see what’s on both sides.
  • Make sure you understand the information on each card. If something’s unclear, click the link to the revision notes at the bottom of the page for more details.

2️⃣ Test yourself:

  • Look at the question or prompt on each card and try to remember the answer before flipping it over.
  • Check the answer and make a note of any cards you find challenging and need to go over more.

3️⃣ Consistently Review and Practice:

  • Use spaced repetition: spend more time on the cards you struggle with and go over them more often.
  • Regularly review all the flashcards to help you better understand and retain the information over time.

Note: We may include questions that have multiple correct answers. It’s useful to remember specific examples to understand these concepts better.

What is a line graph used for?

A line graph is used to display data that changes over time, showing trends or patterns in the data set.

How is data represented in a line graph?

Data in a line graph is represented by points connected by straight lines, with the x-axis usually showing time intervals and the y-axis showing the variable being measured.

What does the slope of a line on a line graph indicate?

The slope of a line indicates the rate of change. A steeper slope shows a rapid change, while a flatter slope shows a slower change.

What is the significance of the intersection points on a line graph?

Intersection points (where the lines cross) can indicate significant events or changes in trends, such as when one data set overtakes another.

How can you identify the maximum and minimum values in a line graph?

The maximum and minimum values can be identified as the highest and lowest points on the line graph respectively.

What should you include when labelling a line graph?

When labelling a line graph, include a title, labels for the x-axis and y-axis, units of measurement, and a key if multiple lines are used.
