In this highly technological and information age that we live in, one of the best ways we work to digest all the knowledge that streams our way is with simple, easy-to-read graphs and tables. Make sure your class knows how to comprehend these illustrations. Learners will choose different daily charts that sound interesting to them and answer questions that encourage them to focus on the most important features of the graphs and tables.
students emulate a real world problem and model it with mathematics working in a small group. Observe and facilitate discussion as the groups use various strategies, such as (graphs, brainstorming, tables, and dialogue.
Students describe various graphs and tables for business reports. For this graphs and tables lesson plan, students do this in an ESL class.
Plots, equations, and tables oh my! Learners follow the algebra yellow brick road in an activity to develop their conceptual understanding of graphs, equations, tables, real-life scenarios, and how they are all related. Given one of the representations on the PETS (Plots, Equations, Tables, and Stories) worksheet, learners complete the three remaining representations.
In life, adults must often interact with spreadsheet programs. They are incredibly valuable tools, yet many adults didn't have the opportunity to learn about them in their own schooling. Examine the various ways a program such as Microsoft Excel is used with this guided activity. Rather than having your class complete the worksheet on their own as independent practice, try reviewing it as a whole group and then conclude with a separate lesson on how to actually construct a spreadsheet.
Giddayup! How can we represent how far a horse can trot within a certain amount of time? Show it on a graph! After examining this example, math classes crate their own "stories" for different tables of time and distance data, and then address several more word problems in which rates are represented by data in tables and on graphs. This may be just what you are looking for to help meet Common Core standards for understanding rate of change!
With the assistance of their Ti-84/Ti-83 Plus calculators, young scholars develop a foundation for the limiting process as well as estimate limits from graphs and tables of values. They view how a function behaves as the input approaches a particular value.
Students investigate exponential decay.  Students explore the biological half-life of Cesium-137.  Students investigate the Goiania Accident of 1987 which is considered one of the worst incidents in the history of the Atomic Age. 
Pupils explore the concept of linear relationships. They discuss real-world examples of independent and dependent relationships. In addition, they use tables, graphs, and equations to represent linear relationships. They also use ordered pairs to describe relationships between two variables.
Here is a complete chapter on graphing linear equations and functions. Learners review graphing points on a coordinate plane, graph lines and functions, and write linear equations.
First graders analyze nursery rhymes and gather data about word frequency. In this frequency instructional activity, 1st graders create graphs and tables. Students interpret the data.
Learners calculate gas prices. In this transportation activity, students tally the mileage and gas costs of their car for one months. They figure out how much was spent on gas and create a graph showing average gas prices over time. 
Sixth graders create and analyze a model of the solar system. They anaylze and interpret data from graphs and tables. Students use technology (CD-ROMs, Internet and multi-media) to gather and present information on a planet. They compare planetary distances.
Learners demonstrate the use of iteration, recursion and algebra to model and analyze a changing fish population. They use graphs, equations, tables, and technological tools to investigate the effect of varying parameters on the long-term population.
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.
If the flu outbreak continues, exams will have to be canceled. Investigate the properties of exponential and logarithmic functions. In this algebra lesson, learners use the TI to examine and differentiate between exponential growth and decay. They relate math to the real world by creating models.
Here's a real-world lesson using a business simulation. Two business accounts are used to find slope and intercept functions. The class graphs and interprets the information to find a break even point. There are plenty of worksheets and assessments included in this lesson.
Fourth graders, after listing the nine planets and their differences, choose one planet as their favorite. From the information acquired on each students favorite planet, they make a graph illustrating their favorites and then transform the graph into a table format.
Sixth graders survey their class and analyze data about favorite pizza toppings. They use graphs and tables to display survey data and use fractions, percents, and ratios to report results.
Students explore the concept of the unit circle.  In this unit circle instructional activity, students create a scatter plot of the sine, cosine, and tangent function using data from the x and y values on the unit circle.  Students generalize the tangent, sine, and cosine relationships.
