Graphing Practice

Background: The thickness of the annual rings indicates what type of environmental situation was occurring the time of the tree’s development. A thin ring usually indicates a rough period of development such as lack of water, forest fires, or insect infestation. On the other hand, a thick ring means a prosperous period of development. Use the information from the data table below to create a proper scientific graph.
