In this three lesson series students explore and create bar graphs, line plots, and stem-and-leaf plots. Students collect and display data from activities completed in class. The data representations are then analyzed to make predictions and/or determine median, mode, and range. In addition to the three lesson plans there are nine student resource sheets provided.
