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).

Representations of Data

Unit 7: Data and Analysis
Lesson 2 of 8

Objective: SWBAT make representations to communicate results of a survey.

Big Idea: Stop! It's Data Time. Every time your read me from the left or the right. It's the numbers on the board, that make the data right. Students take part in a quick survey to start the lesson and then continue to work on their data representations.
