  1. I think all these links are really useful if you have to write scientific papers where it is useful to include different kinds of graphs.

    The videos are useful. It is a pity that they are just sample units.

    Rhetorical functions in academic writing was interesting as it included first a different models of various fields, to end with the most common expressions used for the various kinds of graphs.

    Finally, I liked the describing graphs link, as it is very simple and straightforward, and the practice exercise is really good to make sure you have understood it.

    • Thanks, Juan Carlos. Remember that all of you with no submitted PECs at all, will have the chance to do a question related with a graph description in the exam. I will try to add more practice now to the virtual course.
