Transcript of Basic Graphing in Graphing in   2013-04-09  Basic Graphing in Gnumeric. ... Histogram

  • Basic Graphing in Gnumeric.

    Here are some instructions to help you recreate the graphs you see below.

  • Boxplot

    1. Highlight a column of data you wish to turn

    into a boxplot.

  • 2. Click the Insert Charts icon.

  • 3. Select the appropriate type of graph from

    the menu. Then click forward.

  • 4. This is the properties editor for your chart.

    You can use it to add and customize sections

    of your chart. It is broken down into various

    sections.

    The first thing we will do is add the second set

    of data. Click on Box-Plot 1, then click the add

    button, and select Add Series to Box-Plot 1.

  • 5. Your screen should look similar to the one

    at right. You can click the boxes to select

    where the information its asking for is found.

    (Name): is in the first row of the second

    column.

    Values: are located in the second column.

  • 6. We will now add labels and a title.

    Click on X-Axis 1, then add, select Label to X-

    Axis 1. In the text field, type the name of your

    label and then press enter.

    Click on Chart 1, then add, select Title to Chart

    1. In the text field, type the name of your title

    and then press enter.

  • 7. Now click insert and drag out the size of

    your chart in Gnumeric. Release and youre

    done.

  • Histogram

    1. Creating a histogram starts the same way

    as a boxplot. Highlight a column of data, click

    insert chart, select histogram and then click

    forward.

  • 2. The first thing you will have to do is setup

    Series 1. For (Name): and Values: proceed as

    you did above with the boxplot. We will

    ignore (Limits): for now.

  • 3. We will now add the second set of data,

    but we will want it to use a different y-axis;

    so we must add that first. Click Chart 1, Click

    Add, select Add Y-Axis to Chart 1.

    Since this axis is closer to our first set of data

    we can change the college data to use this

    axis. Click on Histogram 1, Axes, then change

    Y axis: to

    Y-Axis2.

  • 4. To add the Bachelors Degree data we

    must add a separate histogram (you cannot

    have a single histogram with two series).

    Click Chart 1, Click Add, Add Plot to Chart 1,

    navigate to and click on Histogram.

  • 5. Select the Bachelors Degree data much

    like in step 2. Again ignore the (Limits): field.

    We want this histogram to use the closer Y-

    Axis, so as before click on Histogram2, Axes

    and Change Y-Axis: to Y-Axis1.

  • 6. Next you will add the drop lines. Click on

    College, Click Add, Select Drop lines to

    College. Repeat for Bachelors.

  • 7. Complete the histogram by adding a title,

    label to the x-axis and inserting the chart on

    your page. If youd like you can add a legend

    to your chart as well.

    After you have added both charts, save your

    file using your names followed by the word

    charts. Turn in your file using
