Lesson objective: Solve problems using data from a line plot.

This lesson provides an opportunity for students to apply their knowledge and understanding of interpreting data to a real-life situation. Students are asked to interpret the given data and distribute it evenly.

Key Concept students will use:

- Different ways data are organized helps us answer different types of questions.

Skills students will use:

- Create a line plot with fractions of a unit (Grade 4, Unit 9)
- Solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with information from line plots (Grade 4, Unit 9)
- Solve problems involving multiplication and division of fractions

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 2 (Reason abstractly and quantitatively) as they create a line plot to see what the data look like, make predictions, and decide how to solve a real life problem.

**Key vocabulary: **

- data
- line plot
- prediction
