What better way to problem solve than error analysis! Students will love working these problems out with partners or even independently!
Students will look at bar graphs and double bar graphs while analyzing and solving one to two step problems.
UPDATE 8-11-18 This is the newer version of the same great activity. I just made the graphs bigger and the sorting cards bigger. I have included the older version which is more condensed so that you can choose which version you want to use in your classroom.
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. Activity could be used with whole group or small group.
