Look at the sheet that was given to you so you can walk through the steps to make a pie graph about the composition of Loam. Once you are done you will need to complete a pie graph to turn in at the end of the period, play some review games, then you can get your homework.
HW: Finish reading the Devil's Tower article and answering the questions (3rd period you are 750L and AC you are 1210L)
Here are the directions for the day in case you lost your sheet:
Soil Pie Chart
Step 1: Go to https://nces.ed.gov/nceskids/createagraph/ and click on ‘PIE’ graph
Step 2: Choose what type of shading you would like your pie graph to have (solid, pattern or gradient). Also choose your background color.
Step 3: Click on ‘Data’ to the right
Step 4: Enter the following information
Graph Title: Composition of Loam
Source: YOUR NAME
Data Set: Pie Slices 6
Step 5: Click on ‘Labels’ on the right hand side in order to choose your fonts, colors, and font size.
Step 6: Click on ‘Preview’ to look at a preview of your graph. If you are satisfied with your graph, it has a title, your name, label key, and labels on the pie chart you can move on.
Step 7: Click on ‘Print/Save’ and in the ‘Email this graph’ section enter Brittany.firstname.lastname@example.org
Once you are done, make a pie graph on your own sheet of paper to be turned in at the end of class that has the following items
Weathered Rocks and minerals
(You will have to think about what weathered rocks and minerals are in LOAM and what that total percentage is in order to put it into your pie chart)
When you finish your TWO pie charts, finish your performance tasks #5-8 since they are due FRIDAY!
When you are done with your performance tasks, you can click on the links below:
