Data Handling: Bar Graph vs Histogram - The Challenge

Ms Manju, the school librarian, makes use of the database management system to keep track of the loans by students.

Each month, she would present the data below in a bar graph. The bar graph shows the total number of books borrowed by category from January to May.


The Challenge
From the way the system captures the information, there are more useful information that can be extracted from the system for use.

Suggest to Ms Manju how she could make use of the data captured in the system to present a different set of information (other than the number of books borrowed by categories) using a histogram. Elaborate how this information can be used to work out with a strategy to encourage students to read more books.

As a group, present your suggested solution in the A3 paper provided. You may do 'mock up' on how the histogram looks like. Remember to label the axes of the histogram clearly.

Below the histogram, elaborate how this information can be used to work out a strategy to encourage students to read more books.

Submission:
Submit your answer to Ms Loh's pigeonhole upon completion (by Tuesday 9 July 2013)*
Remember to include your Class, Group number, Name of Group Members at the bottom of the paper.
