Study Notes

Interpreting Information

  • Information can be presented in three common ways: visually, orally, and quantitatively.
  • Visual information uses pictures or images to convey meaning.
  • To interpret visual information, look for:
    • Headings
    • Bold text
    • Key terms
    • Other details in the picture
  • Example of visual information: a food label, which provides information about vitamins and minerals in the food.
  • A food label typically includes:
    • Nutrition Facts
    • Calories
    • Total Fat
    • Carbohydrates
    • Sodium
    • Protein
    • Cholesterol
    • % Daily Value

Oral Information

  • Oral information uses words or conversation to present information.
  • To interpret oral information, listen for:
    • Key words
    • Information that is repeated
    • Tone of voice
    • Main idea
  • Example of oral information: a persuasive speech, such as Suzy's speech about cleaning up the community playground.
  • Key words in Suzy's speech: "filthy", "garbage-filled", "trash", which illustrate the main idea of the need to clean up the playground.

Quantitative Information

  • Quantitative information uses graphs, charts, and timelines to present information about quantities or numbers.
  • To interpret quantitative information, look for:
    • Titles
    • Labels
    • Dates
    • Times
    • Numbers
  • Example of quantitative information: a bar graph showing the number of students who play certain sports.
  • From the graph, we can determine that:
    • About twice as many students play baseball compared to volleyball.
    • Most of the students play basketball or soccer.
