Lesson 

Notes: · As we know from yesterday, circle graphs show different parts of a whole (100%). · When creating a circle graph, we should follow these steps: o Determine if the data is “suitable” for a circle graph. Is there a whole for the data?
o Calculate Percentages – determine what the whole is by adding all of the parts together. Then figure out the percents by dividing the part for each category by the whole.

o Draw the Graph – draw a circle and divide the circle into parts. Use a 100^{th} disc to help you split the parts accurately
o Title and Label the Graph – give the graph and appropriate title and label each section with the name and percentage.
