Read and Interpret Pie Charts.

Today we are going to learn about pie charts. First of all, start off by thinking about what a pie chart is. When have you seen one before? What are they used for?

The whole circle of a pie chart represents 100% all of the data used. So if 40 people were asked their favourite ice cream flavours, then 100% would equal 40. It is always important to know what 100% equals when working with Pie Charts.

A circle is 360° so we also need to remember that 100% is equal to 360°.  

Watch the videos below for an explanation of how to read and interpret pie charts.
