Young mathematicians review what they have previously learned about coordinates and straight line graphs. Then, they access an interactive component within the lesson to gain more practice with this skill. Additionally, there are two very good worksheets embedded in the plan which would serve as excellent in-class, or homework assignments.
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.
Even though they were written for upper-level high schoolers or college pupils, the labs herein are possible to use even in middle school. In the activity, kids observe osmosis in both potatoes and elodea plants, then record and graph their data. They finish up by answering some analysis questions regarding the lab.
Students are able to identify the characteristics of a variety of graphs (i.e. bar graph, line graph, pie graph, scatter plot, population pyramids, etc.) They recognize how the type of data to be presented plays a role in choosing the correct form of graph. Students create a series of graphs for analyzing and presenting data for their final project country.
Fourth graders discuss, describe and track weather by utilizing a variety of measurable quantities as temperature, wind speed, wind direction, cloud conditions and precipitation. They assess, through experiments and practicing, how to forecast weather conditions. In addition, they study how to read a thermometer accurately and graph temperatures on a line graph.
Fourth graders prepare two spreadsheets each with an embedded line graph that displays data about the growth of the bitter rot fungus on apples and on petri dishes that were stored in the refrigerator and the classroom. They prepare a spreadsheet with an embedded bar graph that displays data that shows the length of the apple peeling of each student in the class.
Students identify animal habitats and the factors for survival. In this animal habitats lesson, students discuss the concept of the impact of limiting factors on an ecosystem and view a PowerPoint. Students play a limiting factors simulation game and create a spreadsheet in Excel of the data from the activity. Students create a line graph from the spreadsheets and write a summary of the results.
There are a number of activities here where learners collect and record data, as well as, activities where the likelihood of an event happening is calculated given the experimental probability. Young statisticians organize information into line plots, stem and leaf plots, frequency tables, identify outliers, clusters, gaps, and the range of their data. They also engage in activities that generate data related to chance and make predictions based on the data.
In this statistics worksheet, students examine and interpret pictographs and line graphs. Students analyze the provided data in order to create bar graphs, circle graphs, and box and whisker plots. The nine page worksheet accompanies a computer component which provides the directed instruction. The worksheet contains fifteen multi-part questions. Answers are not provided.
