Graphing Calculator MatchingMania consists of 12 functions. Students work together using a graphing calculator to find the zeroes, minimums and/or maximums and the points of intesection of two functions. This is a great calculator review activity or learning activity to begin the school year with i
This three part mini-unit teaches the concept of supply and demand at the second grade level from introducing the idea to applying the concept. Math and writing extension activities are incorporated at two levels to meet the needs of your classroom.
These high interest graphs have questions that focus on these basic graphing terms and concepts: how many, most, fewest, more, fewer, how many more and how many fewer. Two versions of each graph, one with pictures and one without, allow you to differentiate the task based on the students' needs. F
This is a powerpoint that I created that is step by step on how to create a bar graph. It also gives different bar graphs at then end for students to see a variety of different ones. I also included the references on where I found the last few examples of bar graphs. This comes in hainding if you tea
This is a quick activity where students cut and match the inequality to the graph. The students can paste it into their notebooks and discuss the graph with their partners. As a whole group the class needs to discuss the answers and why it works. Then after the students recognize how to graph, you

This mini-book is a great introduction to bar graphs! It begins with a definition of a bar graph and what type of data it is used to display. There is a diagram of a bar graph labeling all of the parts and an example of each type of bar graph. There are two practice pages for each type of bar graph w
Graphing skills every Physics (General Science) student must posses. 3 types of mathematical relationships and their graphical presentations. These 5 pages of theory and practice is the part of Math for Physics/Science Students mini-course I have developed for my Regents Physics class.
By the time students reach middle school, they have learned how to fill in the data on a table, bar chart, and graph, but they still need to learn how to create (construct, make, or draw) one from scratch. This is a PowerPoint presentation, with lecture notes and associated worksheets, that demonstra

This unit takes the topic of 5 senses and makes it fun and interactive for the students. Take a look at the preview and
This seasonal activity engages your students in collecting data by picking and replacing the letters of a word in a paper lunch bag until all the letters have been picked. Then they use their collected data to complete a bar graph and answer questions. There are 3 seasonal, holiday, or national day w
My students really struggled with graphing and had very little prior knowledge. We went over three packets in class. This is the first one.
This discusses how to understand data tables, from labeling them properly to getting meaning from the data points.

This four-page packet provides lessons and practice for pictographs, bar graphs, line graphs, and circle (pie) graphs. Each page gives a clear, four-step process that works. Students will interpret data to create easy and accurate graphs, a skill often required by standardized state tests.
This math project is not only educational, but also delicious. Students learn many concepts covered in the cycle 3 curriculum.
Concepts covered are:
- Statistics (probability)
- Graphing and charts
- Data collection
- Mean, median, mode, and range
Enjoy! Also, remember
Building Equations ppt description
This PowerPoint is nine slides long and builds on previous knowledge of a slope intercept form. This lesson satisfies the some of the requirements for common core 8.EE.6. It is well suited for the intermediate (middle) school students. Slide #2 is the vocabulary
This interactive Smart Board presentation provides an introduction to bar graphs, line graphs, pie graphs, histograms, line plots and frequency tables. It provides an explanation each type of graph followed by a practice slide. There are a total of 17 colorful pages.
Here are the types of practice:
1 – Get familiar with the number line, adding on it, and subtracting on it
2 – Get familiar with algebraic expressions and variables (letters) being used to represent numbers
3 – Get familiar with prices being shown on the upward Y-axis and numbers of items being on th
This power point introduces and explains scatter plots. Students are shown how to plot points on the scatter plot from existing data/statistics. When interpreting data from a graph, cause and effect are discussed, as well as probability. Fun riddles and quotes are included. There are notes for st
