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.
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.
Practice graphing ordered pairs by playing an online graphing game. Learners will discover why it is useful to plot coordinates on a xy plane. Graph Mole, is the online game that allows them to practice through a fun, interactive story. This is a completely free activity.
Can you translate a graph? Using the packet and its step-by-step instructions, the class is taught how to translate parent functions. They will practice translating functions graphically and algebraically. Then they shift absolute value, quadratic, and exponential graphs.
Here are a set of graphing lessons that have a real-world business focus. Math skills include creating a scatter plot or line graph, fitting a line to a scatter plot, and making predictions. These lessons are aimed at an algebra 1 level but can be adapted either for middle school or higher levels.
