## 2.MD.D.10

## Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

29 Lesson(s)

#### Climbing a mountain, you reach the greatest height at the top. What about a math mountain? The graphic can help students solve for a missing number.

#### Lets graph something students are interested in. Favorite Dr. Seuss characters are something that students can collect data on, graph and interpret.

Big Idea:

#### We can create graphs to represent habitats.

#### Most people use math in their jobs but for children this use is usually unknown. This lesson will help children see some of the ways math is used by adults in their daily life.

#### Students have greater engagement in learning when it is organized around gathering and using meaningful data.

#### Students have gathered data on where math is used both at school and at home. Data by itself is meaningless. The students will be introduced to using the data to answer questions.

Big Idea:

#### In this lesson, students will understand that tables help us organize information clearly.

#### Students review how to make bar graphs, line plots, and pictographs by tallying the contents of snack mix and building graphs to show their data.

Big Idea:

#### Students use data to create a tally chart and make a bar graph

#### Your students spend all of their time and effort collecting the data, but what happens next? This lesson will guide your students through the necessities of creating a graph and analyzing the data to understand what the data actually means!

Big Idea:

#### Students build towards making their own bar graph by using data to make a tally chart.

#### Students will engage in a round-robin graphing extravaganza to sharpen their graphing abilities, as well as strengthen their scientific reasoning skills. This activity will prepare your students for a year of data analysis and Biology discovery!
