PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This investigation introduces your students to four methods for displaying data: frequency tables, bar graphs, pictographs and line plots. Students will have the opportunity to record observations about each method for displaying data and compare/contrast methods for collecting data in their My Data Smarts journal.

Students will then use this knowledge to complete their own data collection and graphing activity using the popular Valentine’s Day candy, conversation hearts. During this activity, students will make predictions about the number of candies in their box, record the actual number of candies using a frequency table, and graph their results on a pictograph, bar graph and line plot.

Finally, students will analyze their data by answering questions that require them to refer to their various tables and graphs. Each question is increasingly more challenging to build students’ data analysis skills.

It is recommend that this math investigation be completed over the course of three 45-minute math sessions.
