The Mollweide Projection
The Mollweide projection shows lines of longitude that are NOT parallel. They meet at the poles The shape of the land masses is distorted. North America, Asia, and Australia are flattened on the diagonal. Sizes of land masses are more accurate, so this is good for representing all continents. The oceans look distorted.

The Robinson Projection
The Robinson projection shows lines of longitude that are not parallel and do not meet at the poles. Antarctica looks very large. Greenland looks flattened north to south. The size of land masses and ocean sizes looks less distorted than the other two, so this is good for representing both land and water.

The Mercator Projection
Shows lines of longitude that are parallel to one another and perpendicular to lines of latitude, making a GRID Close to the poles the land masses are very large (e.g. Greenland, Canada, Russia, etc.) South America and Africa look very small in comparison. The ocean distances and latitude/longitude lines are not distorted, so this was good for navigating ocean travel.
