Students will look at bar graphs and double bar graphs while analyzing and solving one to two step problems. This download only focuses on adding and subtracting whole numbers while also interpreting the data within the graphs. There are 2 bar graphs and 2 double bar graphs. Two graphs use vertical bars and two use horizontal bars. One of the double bar graphs is missing data, for which the student must figure out and solve problems involving the date that was missing.
Students will look at 8 statements for each graph and sort statements into true or false statements. Students must calculate, justify and explain their reasoning with their groups or partners. Acitvity could be used with whole group or small group.
