Drawing Linear Graphs

For clarity in illustration, ink is used in this 'demonstration'.
You should use a sharp pencil, and ruler to plot your graph. Always get ready an eraser to clean off any irrelevant markings.

Step 1: How do we decide where to place the axes?
  • Do you "know" the graph paper?
  • What would you make reference to?




Step 2: Scale matters!
  • The numbers on the axes must be clearly marked.
  • The scale should be written on the top right corner of the graph paper.



Step 3: Let's start plotting!

  • Mark the points clearly with "X"
  • Join the points with a straight line (use a long ruler!)
  • The line should be drawn within the given domain
