Comparing Graphs

Below I have created a number of graphs using the same data. The data used was how many points a football team scored in the first 6 weeks of the season.

When we collect data we need to make careful choices about to represent it and which graphs are appropriate to use.

Your task is to look at the graphs below and give reasons why particular graphs might or might not be helpful to answer a question about this data set. Good luck 🙂
