# Graphing: Plotting Data

Lesson 17 of 22

## Objective: Students will be able to plot ordered pairs in the first quadrant of the coordinate grid.

#### Opener

*10 min*

For the opener I will display a graph and do a See, Think, Wonder. The graph I display will have important elements missing from it so that the graph doesn’t really make sense. For example, I will omit some of the labels for the axes and the title of the graph.

At the end I will display the correct graph with all the parts and ask students if it made a difference in their understanding of the information.

#### Practice

*20 min*

I will model for the students how to take the table that we created yesterday in the duck! Rabbit! Activity and create a graph. I will then have students graph the combined data for their grade level.

As students begin to finish I will ask them to also graph the data for the other two grade levels. They should have three separate lines on their graphs. I will ask them to use different colors to create the points.

To wrap up the activity I will also teach students how to make a legend for their graph so that they can distinguish between the grade levels.

#### Closer

*10 min*

As an exit slip, I will have students write a list of things a graph has. I will allow the students to use the examples created today to guide them in creating their list.
