## Reflection: Collecting Data- Counting Pictures - Section 1: Problem of the Day

I use the Problem of the Day to review prior skills.  It is not where I teach new things (unless there is a teachable moment that occurs).  I am looking for the students to use what we have learned to solve the problems.  Even through we introduced graphing centers yesterday, we have not really learned about graphs yet, so I decided to focus on teen numbers which is where my students are still struggling.

Why not a graphing question?

## Big Idea: By sorting objects and pictures and representing them on a graph, students learn to create an abstract representation of a collection of objects that can be used to answer quantitative and comparison questions about the collection.
