 Bar graphs allow  you to see   differences     between different  groups.   From the survey  there are 20     Dalmatians  represented in the  bar graph. Using representation:                       = 100    = 10   = 1   Example:                      +            =                                or 276 units Place Value blocks    can be used as    visuals to help you   add.162 + 114  = 276 units Frequency tables       help to organize   data.  There were 5 kids   absent from school   on Friday.
