Place dots for the data

   As a first step, place dots on the chart to show the data for the Gross National Product in each of the four years shown on the graph.  The data can be found in the table at the bottom of the page.

Connecting the dots

   Next, draw straight line segments to connect the four dots.  The result should look like the graph on the page below.

Repeat the process!

   Follow the same steps to complete the graphs on this page and page 175, using the data shown in the tables.

The graphs are by David Burns.
