Description:

This lesson is designed to introduce students to histograms and bar graphs as graphical representations of data. The lesson also covers the distinction between histograms and bar graphs and the concepts of class intervals and scale. The lesson provides links to discussions and activities related to these topics as well as worksheets for further practice. Finally, the lesson provides links to follow-up lessons designed for use in succession with this one.

CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.D.10: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems using information presented in a bar graph.

CCSS.Math.Content.4.MD.B.4: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions by using information presented in line plots.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.MD.B.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Represent and interpret data.

CCSS.Math.Content.5.MD.B.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots.

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.A.1: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Represent data with plots on the real number line (dot plots, histograms, and box plots).

CCSS.Math.Content.HSS-ID.A.2: Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Use statistics appropriate to the shape of the data distribution to compare center (median, mean) and spread (interquartile range, standard deviation) of two or more different data sets.
