When the data on the graph is continuous,it does make sense to connect the points on the graph of 2 related variables.

either a scatter graph or a line graph xx :)

a non linear graph pretty much means the points on the graph do not create a straight line. in order for a graph to be linear both the x axis and y axis have to increase/decrease at a constant rate, while in a non-linear graph when you connect the point it creates a line that isn't straight. however, in experimental data if the points are a bit off, but still in one general area, it can be considered linear.

If you want to draw a good graph, draw a smooth curve. If you just draw straight lines connecting the points, depending on which points you pick, you could get a really inaccurate graph. So, always plot a lot of points before drawing a line, and draw a smooth line!

yes

the points on a bar graph are not connected to each other.

It is improper to connect the dots on a graph because experimental data never makes a straight line. the dots in a graph (points) are not guaranteed to be right. hopes this helps SR. :)

that depends on what you are trying to do

If you had a formula you would plug numbers in for the variables and solve for the other variables create a list of coordinates (data points). Next you would graph those points and connect the dots.

If the variables are something continuous, then you should connect the points. For example, if it is your height and weight then since those variables are continuous it is necessary to connect the points plotted on the coordinate graph.

Because their is no lines on the graph to connect the point.

A scatter plot would be best for non-related data points. A line graph would be best for related data points.

No.If the points on the graph are connected then they are already connected so it would be complete waste of time to connect them.

(it makes sense to connect the points on a graph wen there is movement....or so u can see it more cearly)--BreeBree..... hope i helped!! OR you could connect the points when it is a continuous thing.

Line graph...
