Always label with units that are CONSISTENT
X = independent variable
Y = dependent variable
Title should go as follows: DV vs. IV
Remember:
D - Dependent
R - Responding
Y - Y axis
M - Manipulated
I - Independent
X - X axis
How to identify range:
Look at the highest and lowest point from each variable ------>
X - 4&10 Y- 16&98
Subtract lowest from highest
10-4 and 98-16
Then you get your range!
X- 6 and Y- 82
Take your range and divide it by the number of lines on your axes.
Ex - Say your range is 20 but you only have 10 lines, you would do 20/10 and get 2
2 would be your unit of increasement
Say you get a decimal - for example 1.6666- you would round UP to 2.
Always round up
Repeat for all axes
