Big Ideas: Graphs can be interpreted for information. Data can be analyzed for information. This lesson builds on students' work with analyzing and interpreting data presented in a bar graph in second grade. This task set will explore how data can be organized to communicate information using a scaled bar graph. Students will be asked to analyze the data to attain a deeper understanding of the information. They will evaluate various bar graphs and assess various interpretations. The mathematical concepts in this lesson build toward students' future work with data analysis in later grades. Vocabulary: bar graph, collect, data, analyze, information Special Materials: Math Journal
