Big Ideas: Data must be organized and sorted in order to understand it. Data in a bar graph can be analyzed for information. This lesson builds on students’ work with collecting and organizing pieces of information into a bar graph. This task uses a scenario in which students evaluate Ivan’s process of organizing data into a bar graph. The students will be asked to organize data and represent it using a bar graph. Students will be building their foundational knowledge of organizing data into a bar graph. The mathematical concepts in this lesson build towards students’ future work with pictographs, line graphs, and pie graphs. Vocabulary: bar graph, data, table, scale Special Materials: Math Journals Crayons Graph Paper Rulers
