Bar line graphs?

    No. I would call this a frequency polygon and that wouldn't come up at primary.
    A line graph could have points joined up by straight lines but a bar line graph is a bar chart with very thin bars.
  2. Brilliant. That clears that up. Thanks!
    In what situation is this more useful than a normal bar graph?

    and when you don't want the little dears to draw one graph and spend 40 mins colouring it in!
  5. Lol, seem like valid enough reasons to me! Thanks everyone.

    It's also good for ensuring that they put gaps between the bars for discrete data!
