# Line plots review

Review the basics of lines plots and then practice creating and reading line plots.

## What are line plots?

A

**line plot**is a way to display data along a number line.*Line plots are also called dot plots.*Below is an example of a line plot showing the distance turtles traveled in an hour (we know it is turtles because there are dots on the line plot).

The dots above mean that turtles traveled a distance of meters in an hour.

To graph data on a line plot, we put a dot (or an X) above each number in the data set. If a number appears twice in the data, we put two dots above that number.

For example, a graph of the data set would look like this:
