General Information:

This interactive histogram activity is created and intended for use in Google Classroom. This activity uses a series of sports and exercise related examples as an extension to the Data and Statistics Exercise Unit. After learning how to read and create a histogram, this histogram activity can be used as a check for understanding, additional practice and as a lesson extension.

In this activity, students are first introduced to how to manipulate the shapes and items they will be using on the slides to follow. In doing so, students have less issues when completing the math related activities. Next, students work on making the graph. Following this activity slide, students extend their general understanding through the creation of a graph consisting of his/her own data. Finally, students solidify their understanding about the graph through a short writing prompt/open ended question/word problem.

This activity is recommended for students to complete independently or in pairs. When working in pairs, students may hold rich discussions about the graphs that would not take place while working independently.

The student slides can be used as a standalone activity or as a series of review questions when combined with the “Box Plot” and “Line Plot” graphing activities.

Included in this resource:

- Two activities where students create a histogram

- Two activities where students create histograms based on a description of the
shape of the graphs
