    Burn down chart
    In this example story burn down chart, the blue line represents the ideal progress for the sprint from start to finish. The red line is the actual progress the scrum team made during the sprint. Team progress below the blue line shows where team activity surpassed the ideal slope as team members completed more story points than expected. The upward slope indicates the introduction of additional work (points) into the sprint, perhaps because of an unexpected task. The team was blocked for two separate days toward the end of the sprint and then had to complete 15 points of work in the final day.
