Bar Graph

Course: 
3rd Grade

A graph that uses bars to show data.

The bars in a bar graph typically represent categories, and their length indicates a quantity associated with each category.

This bar graph made by second graders shows the ages of the pennies they have been studying.

The labels under each bar indicate what age range that bar represents. The height of each bar indicates how many pennies fell into that range.
