  5. Place your data on a graph. Be sure to title it, label it and follow all the conventions of graphing.
  6. What conclusion can you draw from your experiment.
  7. Use the same data and find a way to Misrepresent the information that you have gathered.  
  8. Remake the graph showing the same data in different ways (draw our attention to a different piece of information)
