## Reflection: Vertical Alignment Representations of Data - Section 5: A New Example

During this data unit, it is important that students gain an understanding of a variety of ways to represent data.  This activity allows me to model the approach of having each student writing their name under the category choice.  The important part of the discussion is that they see that the results didn't change but rather the way of representing it did.  This entire lesson allowed for the modeling of two different ways of representing data (tally marks and names).
