Graphs are a common way of presenting information. However, like any other type of representation, graphs rely on shared understandings of symbols and styles to convey meaning. Also, graphs are normally drawn specifically with the intention of presenting information in a particularly favourable or unfavourable light, to convince you of an argument or to influence your decisions.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/exploring-distance-time-graphs/content-section-0" /> First published on Mon, 01 Sep 2014 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/exploring-distance-time-graphs/content-section-0">Exploring distance time graphs</a>.

Graphs are a common way of presenting information. However, like any other type of representation, graphs rely on shared understandings of symbols and styles to convey meaning. Also, graphs are normally drawn specifically with the intention of presenting information in a particularly favourable or unfavourable light, to convince you of an argument or to influence your decisions. This free course, Exploring distance time graphs, will enable you to explain, construct, use and interpret distance-time graphs.<link rel="canonical" href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/exploring-distance-time-graphs/content-section-0" /> First published on Mon, 01 Sep 2014 as <a href="http://www.open.edu/openlearn/science-maths-technology/mathematics-and-statistics/mathematics-education/exploring-distance-time-graphs/content-section-0">Exploring distance time graphs</a>.
