Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.
Students have been investigating owl pellets both mathematically and scientifically. Now, they use the information they have gathered to interpret data and ask higher level thinking questions based on the results.
