Data Displays and Analysis Review Cards:
Bar Graph, Stem and Leaf, Histogram, Dot Plot, Box and Whisker Plot, Scatter Plot (2 variable data)
This activity is to be used to review and prepare students for their assessment over Data Displays and Analysis (Bar Graphs, Stem and Leaf Plots, Box and Whisker Plots, Dot Plots, Histograms & Scatter Plots). This file is prepared so that teachers may print out these cards ahead of time and attach them front to back on the opposite sides of a 3x5 index card.
On the front side you will find the data being represented and a prompt for the students to work out and answer the question. On the back side of the card you will find hints with rules for the different displays of data in case the students get lost and need a reminder. (See Preview for Examples)
I found this activity works best in groups of 2 or 3. Print out one set of cards (6) for each group. I laminated them so I could use them over again. (pages 1-6)
You will also need to print out the answer sheets for each group (pages 7-12). It is best to have these prepared ahead of time so that the students will produce neater graphs than if they do it on their own.
