This inquiry-based lab for introductory physics courses explores the purpose of graphs.  Students measure simple circular objects and blocks, graph the data, and look for relationships in the graphs.  The lab was designed to help students discover the advantage of using graphical representations to understand numerical relationships.

This material is part of a larger collection of introductory physics labs.
