Let's take a look at Luis' bike ride! Scholars examine a line graph charting a 20-kilometer bike ride over the course of six hours. They answer six questions about the data requiring the understand the concepts of each axis and the line itself. They have three example questions to reference. Consider looking at these together first, and possibly numbering the six questions before copying to make review easier. Use this to prepare kids to chart their own bike rides or maybe a school fundraising run.
Straight Line Graphs
For this line graphs worksheet, students draw lines for 9 problems then solve 9 additional problems relating to line graphs. Answers are included.
Basic Algebra and Computers: Spreadsheets, Charts, and Simple Line Graphs
Students, while in the computer lab, assess how to use Microsoft Excel as a "graphing calculator." They view visual representations of line graphs in a Cartesian plane while incorporating basic skills for using Excel productively.
Learning to Make Line Graphs
Students analyze data and create a line graph. In this graphing instructional activity, students explore data from a previous experiment and plot the information on a line graph. Students analyze their findings.
Interpreting Line Graphs
Fifth graders interpret line graphs. In this graphing lesson plan, 5th graders first begin by reviewing the difference in bar and line graphs and what they are used for. Students practice interpreting the data on various line graphs and using data to answer questions.
RCX Car Line Graph
Students develop a line graph based on distances that an RCX car drives in specified amounts of time. They then are given a specific amount of time for the car to drive and be asked to extrapolate the car's distance from the graph.
Learn about the destruction of the rainforest by analyzing statistics. Young learners make an original line graph showing destruction in the rainforest. Additional activities include a collage, a sequencing of the book The Lorax, collecting facts from fact cards, and describing the role of those concerned.
Looking Through Line Graphs
Students read line graphs. In this graphing instructional activity, students identify the x axis and y axis and plot various points. Students complete a worksheet.
Family Activity: Bar Graphs and Line Graphs
In this math worksheet, students work at home with a family member on a graphing activity. Students count the number of cans, glass jars, boxes and bags in the pantry. Students make a bar and a line graph to represent the data.
Creating Line Graphs
Students draw line graphs. In this math lesson, students interpret minimum wage data and graph the data in a line graph. Students predict the next minimum wage and figure the earnings for a 40 hour work week for someone earning the minimum wage.
Learning to Make Line Graphs
Students construct line graphs using data. For this graphing lesson, students collect data from experiments and demonstrate how to graph the results. Students analyze the data.
Savings Planning Using Tables, Line Graphs and Early Proportionality
Students use proportional reasoning to make a chart of daily savings transactions and balances. In this accounting lesson, students read word problems and complete three handouts about a bidding and accounting problem. Students finish with two assessments for the activity.
Looking Through Line Graphs
Students explore line graphs. In this third through fifth grade mathematics lesson, students analyze line graphs as they determine how two pieces of information are related and how data changes over time.
Line Graphs Showing Change Over Time
Students analyze line graphs. In this graphing lesson, students analyze line graphs paying attention to how the data changes over time. This lesson includes two video clips, one demonstrating an increasing line graph and one demonstrating a decreasing line graph. Students work in groups to write a story that goes along with one of the line graphs.
INVESTIGATING PULSE RATE
Learners determine pulse rates using Team Labs heart rate monitor software and probe. They determine the effect on pulse rate of at attention, holding your breath, breathing into a bag, deep breathing, exercise, and make a line graph using Excel.
Conduction, Convection, Radiation, Oh My!
Students draw a line graph, and use graphing as a tool to discover more about conduction, convection and radiation. They should design their own experiment using heat sensitive paper to show they explain these 3 processes.
Seventh graders create a line graph and identify when to use line graphs. In this line graphs lesson, 7th graders analyze the average temperatures of various cities. Students graph the data they collected.
C is for Cookie-A MEAN-ingful Graphing Activity
Third graders, in groups, dissect a variety of brands of chocolate chip cookies and calculate the mean for each brand. They create their own bar graphs, pictographs, and line graphs to represent information.
Impact of Climate Change on Chinook Salmon
If your kids already know something about the water cycle, life cycle of salmon, and climate change, then they're ready to participate in an activity that explores Chinook salmon of the Pacific Northwest. They read an article and a case study, then discuss the potential or actual impact of climate change on the Chinook salmon. They examine POD cycles and create graphs that show changes in salmon populations due to increases in sea temperatures. The final assessment activity requires them to make short presentations using both their graphs and their evidence, which they obtained from their readings.
When Will We Ever Use This? Predicting Using 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.
