Math Lesson: What Do You Want to Know? - Country Statistics
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.
Skittles, Skittles, A Rainbow of Colors!
Sixth graders research the candy, Skittles, on various websites. They sort the candies according to color, and develop a frequency table, line graph, bar graph, and circle graph using Microsoft Excel.
Line 'Em Up!
Students find coordinate points on a grid and create a line graph with those points. This lesson should ideally be used during a unit on various types of graphs. They make and use coordinate systems to specify locations and to describe paths.
Interpreting Data and Statistics
Learners define terms and analyze data. In this statistics lesson, students plot their data using bar and line graphs. They analyze their data after they graph it and apply the results to the Great Depression.
Fall-2 Tracking African Elephant Conservation Through Graphing - Biology Teaching Thesis
Students define vocabulary words from the article, and discuss how conservation biology relates to the article. They organize population data so that it can be used in a line graph and draus a line graph from a given set of data and include all necessary parts of an informative graph. Students interpret and write a paragraph about their graphs.
Temperature and Tracking Weather
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.
Level III: Technology Integration
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.
The Hudson's Ups and Downs
Fifth graders practice interpreting line graphs of the Hudson River water levels to assess the tides and tidal cycles in the estuary. They explore how weather can affect water levels and tides and observe that high tides and low tides occur in predictable cycles.
Is Portland, Oregon Experiencing Global Warming?
Students use data to determine if the climate in Portland has changed over the years. In this weather instructional activity students complete line graphs and study long wave radiation.
Is That Trash You're Wearing?- Recycling and Line Graph Activity
In this line graph and recycling worksheet, students study recycling facts in a table. They read about the uses of line graphs before making a line graph with the information from the table. They answer fill in the blank questions based on the given information.
Osmosis Demonstration Lab
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.
Four Activities Using Straight Line Graphs
This math packet includes four different activities which puts linear equations and line of best fit in the context of real world applications. Each activity uses a different linear math modeling equation and asks the learners to complete several questions. And grading will be a breeze, because answers are included.
Line 'Em Up!
Coordinate planes and Cartesian graphing systems are the focus of this math lesson plan. Learners use video, internet activities, and engage in hands-on activities in order to explore coordinate planes. The materials needed for this lesson plan are included in the teacher prep section of the lesson plan.
Mobile vs. Money
Students research the internet and use the information they find to plot straight line graphs. They use graphs to make comparisons of the various packages offered. Students interpret graphs and solve problems based on varying parameters.
Line & Scatter (What Would You Use: Part 2)
Young scholars discuss line graphs and scatter plots and the best situations in which to use them. Using the graphs, they determine the type of correlation between variables on a scatterplot. They create a scatterplot and line graph from a predetermined set of data.
Learners examine data analysis. They conduct a randomized sample, input data into a spreadsheet, create histograms, boxplots, scatter plots, number summaries, and line graphs, and compute the standard deviation using a calculator and computer.
Line 'Em Up!
Students collect data using experiments and surveys. They find coordinate points on a grid and represent data using a line graph. The lesson is a foundation for Algebra that is covered in higher grades.
Young learners create and implement a school-wide survey about student body favorites! Learners record and analyze the data on a bar graph, picture graph, and line graph, and then display the data. Then, wrap it all up with a celebration day! Learners wear their favorite colors, eat their favorite foods, and do their favorite activities!
The Hudson's Ups and Downs
Even rivers have tides. Older elementary schoolers will discuss the Hudson River and how weather, water craft, and the ocean cause tidal fluctuation. They will examine a series of line graphs that depict tidal fluctuation, then analyze them in order to determine a pattern. Web links, answer keys, and worksheets are included.
Students analyze and interpret trends in farmland and population data. They develop line graphs of farmland acreage and population growth in Michigan, compare land use to population growth, and evaluate the pros and cons of developing farmland.
