This is a rubric for a Grade 5 graphing unit project, based on the Ontario curriculum for Data Management, (it does not cover Probability).
Also included is a student checklist to allow students to self-check their work for completeness!
Check out the preview, it shows the completed project one student created, (but he did leave a blank spot for a picture of LeBron).
I enjoyed doing this project with my class. Here's what they did:
-students collected data by doing a survey or experiment
-data was recorded in t-charts and tally graphs
-students created a broken-line graph, and 1 other kind of graph
-they explained and summarized what could be learned from the graph (e.g., how does the data fall, what is most/least popular, are there any noticeable trends)
-they found the mean, mode, median of the data
-they explained whether the data was continuous or discrete and why
Everything was presented on a large bristol board.
It was a great project, and it summarized all the learning throughout our graphing unit!
