Bar Graph Investigations - Lesson 6
Young math scholars collect data, make bar graphs, and use comparison subtraction to answer questions about the data. They practice this skill by first identifying their favorite type of fruit, then use this information to make their graphs. This fine instructional activity combines technology with hands-on activities sure to enhance your pupils' understanding of these math concepts.
Get on your Mark, Get Set, Go! Collect, Interpret, and Represent Data Using a Bar Graph and a Circle Graph.
Start this engaging data analysis study with a review of charts and graphs using the linked interactive presentation, which is both hilarious and comprehensive. Consider projecting it and having volunteers come up to complete various challenges. There are 27 statistics-related vocabulary terms you can use in a word sort (pictures of this are included for reference); put learners in small groups to determine how they would categorize these words. Next, groups use pre-collected data to create a pie chart and bar graph on the linked digital tools. Of course, you can easily have them do this by hand. There is an exit slip included here, as well.
Read My Bar Graph!
Elementary schoolers make and use bar graphs to picture information. They learn how choosing the right scale for a bar graph can help make a persuasive argument. This is a terrific lesson on graphing which should excite your kids. There is a nice weblink which leads your students to further on-line activities regarding graphing.
Bar Graphs With Intervals
Give your math class a comprehensive understanding of bar graphs with this series of lessons. The resource is divided into three parts, and all of the accompanying worksheets are included. The class will study different bar graphs, analyze them, and record their answers to the questions provided. Your learners will be fluent in graphing in no time!
Building Brilliant Bar Graphs
Everything you need for a mini-unit on bar graphs is included in this lesson plan! It outlines three lessons and includes worksheets. Learners taste pretzels, shoot baskets (switching off hands), and grab candy, graphing results collaboratively. Entry activities are available for each day, and differentiation helps both learners having difficulty and those moving quickly. To use the linked online tool, you will need an updated version of Java.
Reading Bar Graphs
Working on bar graphs in your math class? Use a thorough worksheet to reinforce graphing and problem solving skills with your third graders. After reviewing two bar graphs, young learners answer ten questions about the data represented in the graph. A great way to work on tables and word problems!
Constructing Line Graphs and Bar Graphs
Students construct line and bar graphs from data presented in tables. The development of a scale and label for each axis and the analyzation of data forms the basis of this lesson.
Fast Food Survey Using Bar Graphs
Second graders create a bar graph to pictorically represent the data collected from a survey of students. They use Excel to electronically create the graphs and data tallies. They then interpret their data using sentences to explain.
The Eyes Have It - Bar Graphs
Students create bar graphs and use them to answer questions about the data. They find the range and mode of the data set.
Histograms and Bar Graphs
Students examine the use of bar graphs and histograms. In this data representation lesson, students investigate the proper use of bar graphs and histograms to represent data. They learn the proper geometric definitions, experience direct instruction, guided practice, and independent application using the provided worksheets.
Introducing the Concept: Making a Double Bar Graph
Young scholars discover the uses of bar graphs and double bar graphs. In this graphing lesson, students analyze information about themselves and graph the results with the rest of the class.
Build a Bar Graph
Learners discover how to use bar graphs. They will gather and organize specific data in order to put it into a bar graph. Then they will answer several questions based on the information they have graphed.
Comparing Connecting Cubes Comparing Columns on a Bar Graph
Students develop bar graphs using comparison subtraction. They use the graphs to answer questions and play a subtraction game.
In this bar graph worksheet, learners read about making quality bar graphs and they make a bar graph using given data. They answer 5 questions about their graph.
Getting to Know Your Classmates Using Bar Graphs
Explore the concept of bar graphs with your math class. They will collect data from their classmates about shoe size, favorite color, type of cell phone, etc. and graph the data on a bar graph. They discuss the results of their survey and present their bar graph to the class.
Olympic Bar Graphs
In this Olympic bar graph worksheet, students pick a sport from the 2004 Olympic games and find data from the Olympic web page. They graph the scores (times, distance, or speed) and the medals. They answer questions about the variables of the graph and other data that could be plotted on this type of graph from the Olympics.
Cosmic Bar Graphs
In this cosmic bar graph worksheet, students solve 2 problems using given bar graphs that plot the number of galaxies vs. the galaxy type and the number of gamma-ray bursts vs. the burst classification. Students find the fraction of galaxies in the cluster that are spirals and the number of bursts that come from outside the Milky Way.
Challenge young mathematicians to buy classroom supplies by staying within the means of a $1,000 budget. The mathematical activity provides learners with the opportunity to decide what items from the supply list would benefit a class of 20 students, and calculate the totals using the four operations. A comprehensive approach to costs and benefits, children can create a labeled bar graph to represent the use of the money. Because there will be various solutions to the investigation, class members are encouraged to compare their choices with a partner. Note: A misalignment in the activity says that students will engage in Common Core standard MP3, but it is actually MP4.
Bar Graphs with Intervals
Second graders explore a variety of bar graphs using familiar contexts. They read, interpret, and construct bar graphs with intervals of two, five and ten. Activities include diverse groupings of students, opportunities for oral and written communication and informal assessment.
Bar Graph Lesson
Young scholars explore the concept of bar graphs. In this bar graph lesson, students use computers to find the height of various things in the world such as buildings, people, boats, landmarks, etc. Young scholars graph their results using a bar graph applet.
