Read through the examples and explanations at Visualizing Science Data. What are the advantages of data represented in
Are there some kinds of data that cannot be represented in each of these formats?
If you need some ideas about how to represent your data, see mycroft's example. Your fellow student used combinations of different string lengths (0.10m, 0.50m, 1.00m, 2.00m) and weights (0.25 lb, 0.50 lb, 1.0 lb, and 2.0 lb) and measured the time for a swing in seconds. He then plotted the time results as a function of weight vs. string length. His graph shows a slight curve, indicating that the appropriate formula describing pendulum periodicity involves an exponent (square, cube, square root) relationship.
