Drawing Graphs
Plotting Data
Plotting data allows you to see any trends or patterns in your results:

Make sure your graph is large enough

Look at your data and choose a sensible scale

Take care to plot your points accurately
Lines of Best Fit
A line of best fit should be drawn, passing as close to as many data points as possible:

Straight lines should be drawn with a ruler

Sometimes a curved line is more appropriate and this can be drawn freehand
Anomalous Results
An anomalous result does not fit the pattern:

Plot all your data on your graph

If you have any anomalies, ignore them when drawing your line of best fit
