Skill Thirty: Use Graphs and Tables
For 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.
Linear Functions: Are You Ready for the REAL World?
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.
Describing Graphs and Tables
Students describe various graphs and tables for business reports. In this graphs and tables lesson plan, students do this in an ESL class.
Beginning Rates of Change
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, students 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.
Graphing Linear Equations and Functions
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 lesson, 1st graders create graphs and tables. Students interpret the data.
Pumped Up Gas Prices
Students 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.
The Nine Planets
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.
Students 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.
Skill Thirty-One: Use Spreadsheet Programs
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.
NUMB3RS Activity: A Matter of Half-Life and Death
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.
Linear Relationships: Tables, Equations, and Graphs
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.
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.
Linear Functions: Are You Ready for the Real World?
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.
What's Your Favorite Planet?
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.
Build A Skittles Graph
Students explore graphing. In this graphing lesson, students sort Skittles candies and use the color groups to create a bar graph. Rubrics and extension activities are provided.
Exponential Growth and Decay
Students explore the concepts of exponential growth and decay. In this Algebra II lesson, the students use a variety of teaching resources, including the web, and modeling and experimentation, to identify exponential growth or decay and sole related problems.
Graphing in Circles
Learners explore the concept of the unit circle. In this unit circle lesson, students create a scatter plot of the sine, cosine, and tangent function using data from the x and y values on the unit circle. Learners generalize the tangent, sine, and cosine relationships.
