Find Frequency Tables educational ideas and activities
Young scholars organize a set of numbers and create tables, charts, and graphs. They examine a set of mock test scores and construct a frequency table for the data, and in pairs design and complete a frequency table labeled with the appropriate intervals for the number of raisins in a box of raisins. Students also complete a worksheet.
Personalize this instructional activity on categorical data and relative frequencies by using data that is based on your class's interests. Survey the class, set up a two-way frequency table, calculate relative marginal and conditional frequencies. Next, interpret the data and make comparisons based on the results. Included are detailed lesson plans, solutions, and a practice resource sheet that can be done in class or assigned as homework.
Fifth graders determine how to organize sets of numbers using appropriate intervals. In guided practice, they complete a frequency table and write to express their thinking when interpreting data. Finally, they participate in a class discussion of the guided practice activity using the appropriate vocabulary which includes: interval, range, tally, frequency table, most likely, and least likely.
So you have a data set and you want a visual diagram to help you analyze the data. Not sure how to draw it? The instructor illustrates four different ways to look at a frequency table: two tally tables, one line graph, and one bar graph. You could use any of these that would work for your data set.
Fourth and fifth graders make predictions using data. In this analyzing data lesson, pupils use experimental data, frequency tables, and line plots to look for patterns in the data in order to determine chance. You will need to make a few adaptations to address fractions if using this with fifth grade Common Core standards for mathematics.
In this data collection and graphing worksheet, students examine a table and a bar graph to determine which better displays information. They work on Gizmo activities and answer the associated questions about frequency, frequency tables, tally charts, and data displays. Gizmo can be found at www.explorelearning.com.
Fourth graders explore making predictions and probability experiments. Using two spinners, they identify the possible combinations of spins and write the fractions that represent probability. They also order the combinations from least likely to most likely and create a frequency table using the data from their experiments.
Fifth graders conduct probability experiments with different colored candies and different colored circles. They create a frequency table while determining possible outcomes in the experiments. Next they complete both guided and independent practice worksheets as they review the concepts.
