Reflection: Grappling with Complexity Ben & Jerry are Coming! - Section 3: Conducting the Survey and Analyzing Results


Creating a bar graph with three categories is a 2nd grade expectation.  The CCSS expects 2nd graders to draw a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories (CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.2.MD.D.10).

Since this is a 2nd grade standard, some of the students may need to be guided with setting up the bar graph.  I found this true with my own students.  They could all fill in the data on the graph, but some needed help setting up the graph.
