Circle Graph for Class 5 Maths

The circle graph is a visual representation of the data in a circle form. Here student deals with the circle graph question for class 5.
In this learning concept, the students will also learn to:

  • Classify what is a circle graph.
  • Evaluate the fraction form of the category used in a circle graph.
  • Identify why circle graphs are used to show.

Each concept is explained to class 5 maths students using illustrations, examples, and mind maps. Students can assess their learning by solving the two printable worksheets given at the page’s end.

Download the circle graph worksheet for class 5 and check the solutions to the circle graph questions for class 5 provided in PDF format.

What is a Circle Graph?

A circle graph is a pictorial representation of data relative to a whole in a circle form.

  • In a circle graph all the portions represent data.
  • Circle graph represents a circle.
  • In a circle graph the circle divides into sectors.
  • Circle graphs represent different types of categories in the graph.
  • In a circle graph we compare data.

Now we show a circle graph of favorite fruit in class 5.

  • A circle graph is usually used to easily show the results of an investigation in a proportional manner.

Let us take an example to understand better

Visualization of the circle graph:

Question:

1) Which is the most popular animal?

Answer:

here lion is the most popular animal.

Question:

2)Write the favorite animal in ascending order?

Answer:

Favorite animals in ascending order are Tiger, Deer, and Lion.
Note: Fractions are also represented by Circle Graph.

Example:

In a bar graph, 32 children voted for their favorite ice cream flavor

circle graph

From this circle graph, we can find some information like

Question:

1) How many children like the mango flavor?

Answer:

As ¼ of 32 is 8.
Hence 8 children like the mango flavor.
To make the circle graph we need to find the fraction of each category.
Now the formula to find the fraction is:
Fraction of the category = Value of the category/Total value

Example:

circle graph

From this graph

Advantages of Circle Graph

  • Circle graph represents data visually as a fractional part of a whole, which is simpler to understand than the other graph.
  • In a circle graph the presence of effective communication tools makes it simpler than other types of graphs.

Disadvantages of Circle Graph

  • It does not easily reveal exact values in the data set.
  • Many pai charts are needed to show the changes in the data.

Did you know?

The addition of all given fractions always must be 1.

Example:

In a bar graph, 32 children voted for their favorite ice cream flavor
