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.
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!
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!
Patterns are prevalent in all levels of math. Common Core Standards expect students to be able to use structure - like that found in repeating the patterns of odd and even numbers or counting by 5s or 10s - to solve problems (MP7).
