Xiang has demonstrated a basic understanding of the use of graphs to display data. A 3D line graph has been selected but the choice has not been justified using mathematical reasoning and the graph is inappropriate for the type of information to be displayed. No title has been provided and only the horizontal axis has been labelled. There is an acknowledgement that the selected graph has disadvantages but alternatives have not been suggested. This work sample demonstrates characteristics of work typically produced by a student performing at grade D standard midway through Stage 3.
