Statistics: Graphs, Charts & Interpretation
In this statistics worksheet, students explore the characteristics of line graphs, bar graphs, circle graphs and the coordinate plane. Afterwards, they graph ordered pairs on a coordinate plane. Students then create a line graph, bar graph, and pie chart from given information. They answer questions and interpret graphed information. This five-page worksheet contains three multi-step problems. Answers to the graphs are provided on page five of the worksheet.
Get the Picture - Severe Weather Graphs and Other Visual Representations
Whereas the instructional activity is an analysis of weather-related data, it can be used in any science class to teach how to review data, graphs, and visual models for pertinent information, and how sometimes these representations help to clarify information. A handout defining various modes of displaying data is included along with six different choices of styles to analyze. Answers are provided for each, along with a detailed explanation. This is a top-notch resource for any science teacher!
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.
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.
Read My Bar Graph!
Elementary schoolers make and use bar graphs to picture information. They learn how choosing the right scale for a bar graph can help make a persuasive argument. This is a terrific lesson on graphing which should excite your kids. There is a nice weblink which leads your students to further on-line activities regarding graphing.
How Graphs Help Us
Each student in the class places one of their shoes on the floor. They discuss the shoes, and attempt to categorize them by type. By lining up shoes in columns on a large piece of paper, they create a graph of their shoe type. Young scholars watch as the teacher labels the x and y axis of the graph. Students create a bar graph on paper. Young scholars create their own bar graph with items brought from home.
The Silk Road, An Ancient Internet
Pupils examine how goods and ideas moved along an ancient trade route between China and Europe. They make charts of items, ideas, etc. that were transported along the Silk Route.
Favorite Season Circle Graph
Students create a graph charting their favorite season. They discuss the difference in the four seasons and activities they participate in, in each of the seasons. They can also take a survey of their family members and add them to the graph.
Graphs of Quadratic Functions
After making a correction to the last problem in his previous video, Sal explains how to graph quadratic functions. Those who have a hard time with the concept of graphing algebraic functions will find Sal's instruction and easygoing manner a welcome change from staring at textbooks.
A third Example of Graphing a Rational Function
Sal takes viewers through another example of graphing rational functions "because you really can't get enough practice here." Combined with the two previous videos on graphing rational functions and asymptotes, viewers will walk away with a strong grasp on the concept and its process.
Graphing Using Intercepts
First taking viewers through the process of graphing using intercepts, Sal then works to graph a word problem. His process is so fluid and easy to understand that all mathematicians, beginning and advanced, could benefit from watching his methods.
Data! Data! Graph that Data!
Fifth graders create data graphs using Microsoft Excel. For this data collection lesson, 5th graders create and conduct a survey, then use Excel to organize and graph their data.
Graphing Linear Inequalities
Looking for a resource that goes beyond just graphing inequalities? Here is one that addresses the need to have learners reason and develop a deeper understanding of the solution set of systems of inequalities. This include writing inequalities, analyzing them algebraically, analyzing them graphically, and also through the use of charts.
Which Car Should I Buy?
Students use gas mileage of different cars to create T charts, algebraic equations, and graphs to show which gets better mileage. In this gas mileage lesson plan, students use the graph to see which car they should buy.
Students determine how to read and record weather data. They use maps, legends, graphs, charts and lists. They read a Washington Post article entitled, "Hi, Sky: How Weather Works."
In this math activity, students perform basic operations all the way up to precalculus. They graph, identify slopes, plot data and analyze it. There are 34 questions.
Regents High School Examination: Mathematics B
In this algebra, graphing, and geometry exam worksheet, 12th graders complete 34 math problems. The skills for each question cover a variety of topics, and graphing on grid paper is required for some of the questions.
Coral Bleaching in the Caribbean
Students practice analyzing images, maps and graphs from Internet-based educational resources. They explore the correlation between sea surface temperature and coral bleaching. Students comprehend that coral reefs are collections of tiny marine creatures that live inside limestone skeletons attached to rocks on shallow ocean floors.
Geography And The Gulf War
High schoolers develop maps, tables, graphs, charts, and diagrams to depict the geographic implications of current world events, and analyze major human conflicts to determine the role of physical and cultural geographic features in the causes, conflict, and outcomes. Pupils conduct research on the Internet or in the library to obtain data and information on the Gulf War that can be used to construct maps, tables, graphs, or diagrams representing changes in the geography of the Middle East.
Close Reading and Charting, Part II: The Iroquois People in Modern Times
Close reading skills are celebrated when fourth graders demonstrate their learning of the Iroquois people in modern times on T-charts, timelines, vote with their feet, and thumbs up/thumbs down. The informational text, The Iroquois: The Six Nations Confederacy, is not provided in these materials, but the book is available through other sources. Don't be deterred, the strategies and teaching techniques are great information and can be generalized to other informational text. Note:This plan is part of a larger ELA unit that also supplements social studies curriculum in the state of New York.
