What Are Pictographs? Just like sometimes we use pictures to describe objects, we use graphs and charts to display statics in some mathematical questions. One such type of graph is known as Pictographs. Pictographs are a representation of data through images. These graphs are used in statistics to represent the frequency of data. Pictures and symbols that are relevant to the data are also used. Pictograms are the simplest, and the easiest representations of statistical data. Every image in the graph represents a certain number of things. Pictographs are mostly used in writing and graphic systems where the characters can be displayed through a picture. Pictograms are often used in various other subjects such as geography, leisure, and tourism. Pictograms are really pretty to look at! They provide you with the information you need, and they help you understand data quite easily! Students can use these worksheets and lessons to learn how to make pictographs and be able to understand them.
