First, We'll go through the Basics of Graphing, then build upon that, and go through the different types of graphing, All Types of Graphs besides Histograms, and Circle Graphs are included in this Instructable.

Step 1: Very Basics
First, we need to know our Axis. The Y-Axis goes up and down, the vertical Axis, and the X-Axis goes side to side, the Horizontal Axis. The Axis are commonly referred to by just the Letter, the Y-Axis is often called just "The Y", and the X-Axis is called just "The X"
Step 2: The Basics
There are four Quadrants in a Graph, and they start at the top right one, and move Counter/Anti-Clockwise. As you can see, they're named Quadrant I, Quadrant II, Quadrant III, and Quadrant IV. (Roman Numerals for 1,2,3,4). In Quadrant I, the X and Y are both positive numbers. In Quadrant II, the X is negative, and the Y is Positive. In Quadrant III, the X and the Y are negative. And in Quadrant IV, the X is positive, and the Y is not.
