How to Read Pictographs - Who says that math is just a boring subject? Math might be confusing, and a very difficult subject to tackle, but there are many topics, definitions, and wonderful things about math that are so fun to learn! Here is a question, do you remember what graphs are? Not to worry! Let’s take a look at what graphs are. Then we can move to learning what a pictograph is and how you can read it for gathering data! Any type of data that is too large and too complicated to be expressed in texts is then explained in visual illustrations. These visual illustrations are known as graphs. A pictograph is a type of graph, and it is incredibly cool! You can learn a lot from looking at a pictograph. Pictographs use symbols and images that are relevant to that data so that you can gain information about the data very easily. Reading pictographs are very easy. There are two axes, the x, and the y-axis, that have the numbers and values. These values represent the data of the question, and the images or symbols represent the highs and lows. The greater the number of images, the greater the value, and the fewer the images, the lower the value.
