The students will be using real life data to create and analyze histograms. They will be surveying their classmates and using data from other grade levels to compare same topic information in a histogram.
This lesson will allow the student to work through three stations. The stations will focus on creating and analyzing circle graphs. The students will be using technology to create their graphs along with a hands on activity using M & M’s.
This activity is designed so that the students create their own Around the Room activity. They will be collecting data, displaying it in a stem and leaf plot, and then developing questions around their display for other students to answer!
The students will be collecting data from other students to represent in a bar graph. If available, they can then use a computer program called Bar Grapher tool to show their data with a different layout.
