From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Graph \Graph\ (gr[.a]f), n. [See -graph.] (Math.)
     1. A curve or surface, the locus of a point whose coordinates
        are the variables in the equation of the locus; as, a
        graph of the exponential function.

     2. A diagram symbolizing a system of interrelations of
        variable quantities using points represented by spots, or
        by lines to represent the relations of continuous
        variables. More than one set of interrelations may be
        presented on one graph, in which case the spots or lines
        are typically distinguishable from each other, as by
        color, shape, thickness, continuity, etc. A diagram in
        which relationships between variables are represented by
        other visual means is sometimes called a graph, as in a
        bar graph, but may also be called a chart.
