Introduction to Graphing

Hi, Evan and Jack here, today we are going to be talking about graphing.
What we did on Wednesday was 2 (easy) sheets or if you didn't find them easy then we well make them easy for you. First you start off with an easy pattern like- a,b,c,a,b,c what comes next? If you have done that, you should toughen up and add another letter (ex. a,b,c,x,x,a,b,c,x,x) what comes next? A pattern is just skipping numbers, or letters in the alphabet this is an example of a pattern: 3,6,9,12,15,18. Now if you didn't get the pattern it is multiplying by 3.

Ok, now lets move onto oredered pairs, the first number is called the X, and the second number is called Y. When you do the ordered pairing the X number always has to come first, then the Y, To determine which one is X you look at the number on the X axis, and vice versa for the Y. You look at both numbers, and where the mark is on the graph, line it up with the numbers on the X and the Y axis, make sure your ordered pairs are inside bracets and the numbers should be separated woth commas.

Dear Jack and Evan,
You did a great post on explaining how to do ordered pairs and graphing. You told exact instructions how to do the ordered pairs and what X and Y are. I think you could have writen a little bit more, and shown an example. Great job!

Hey guys! You did awesome on explaining the graphing, but the part about ordered pairs, after the graphing, didn't have an example, so for minute I was like, ummm, OH! I understood it better after reading your post though! Good job on explaining what X and Y can stand for! Peace out! Jessie

hey, great job on your post. the graphs were really easy to understand. also you guys did a really good job on X and Y thing!

Ruby said...

Hi guys you did a really good job on the post and explaining ordered pairs and graphing and X and Y input output. The pictures made it way easy to understand for someone who didnt know how to do it.

I thought your post was really good before I didn't really understand graphing but know I do thank you but you could've used more pictures

Jack and Evan,
I think you did an awsome job at explaining graphing, but the ordered pairs was a little fuzzy. You forgot to say which was the X and which was the Y, but other than that it was terrific!

Jack and Evan,
You guys did a great post! I like the pictures and how you explained everything! Its fast to learn also!
Good Job!

Taylor.

you guys did great job on your explaining on the how to change the t-tale into graphes and it was more easy to it and you guys forgot about which is X and which is Y and other than that it was very good so let's celebrate!!!

lara said...

hey guys you did a graet job (the pics are kinda small and hard to see) and it was easy to understand

later alar:P:P:P

Evan and Jack,
I think that you guys did a great job on that post. Although it was kind of hard to understand, and the graphing was also small and hard to see. Other then that it was great you did a great job. I understood it easily!

hey guys, you did anesome job on explaining patterns. It was good how you put the graphs and the ordered pairs. But you did not have an example of the ordered pairs.But you still did a graet job on the post.

jagan said...

Dear jack and evan,
it was great in all but you had a couple of spelling mistakes. Your graphs were easy to understand

Good job!!

Dear Jack and Evan.
You guys did great job at poster and it was easy to understand but there was hard word like vice.

ilhan said...

You guy did very good job on explaning how to make graph. I can understand easily but not the hard words.

Jackson said...

Great job explaining what X and Y ment!I usually forgot which one comes first but now that I've read your blog I think I can remember a whole lot better.see you at school:)

Matthew said...

hey guys, you did great on explaining the ordered pairs and graphing. I think the pictires made it were pretty easy to understand. Great job!

Brenden said...

Hey guys, you did a great job explaining patterning and had great detail.

Good job

Ashliegh said...

Hey jack and evan
You both did a good explaination on how to do the ordered pairs and graphing also explaining what X and Y are good job guys

I think you did a good job but you have to make sure you are clear like not making masteaks like multipling when it was adding. All in all you guys explained it very well the pictures really helped me understand

Jenna said...

hi you did a great job on the blog.it's easy to learn it.

hey evan and jack

i thought that your post was awesome you explained yourself really well great job

kcloetmathjournal said...

nice job it realy hepled me think about patterning

Erica said...

Hey! You guys did a good job explaining the X and Y factor but i had a hard time understanding you when you were explaining patterning. You guys did a pretty good job!

Evan, and Jack,

You did a great job on explaining the graphing, and what the Y, and X stand for. I think that if someone didn't know what to do, and how to do it, they would understand it better after the read the instructions on how to do it. Great Job!
