Nothing sparks fun in your math class like a little sugar! Use this to bring Dot Plots to life while practicing many other great math skills including fractions, comparing fractions equivalent fractions, multiplication and MORE!
There are 20 task cards. First mathematicians will create their Dot Plot of candies. The next 19 task will use this Dot Plot. You can by the fun size individually wrapped servings you distribute the amount you would like them to have.
TEKS supported by adding this activity to your class include:
4.9 Data analysis. The student applies mathematical process standards to solve problems by collecting, organizing,
displaying, and interpreting data.
4.9(A) represent data on a frequency table, dot plot, or stem and-leaf plot marked with whole numbers and fractions
4.9(B) solve one- and two-step problems using data in whole number, decimal, and fraction form in a frequency table, dot plot,
or stem-and-leaf plot
4.3(A) represent a fraction a/b as a sum of fractions 1/b, where a and b are whole numbers and b > 0, including when a > b
4.3(B) decompose a fraction in more than one way into a sum of fractions with the same denominator using concrete and pictorial
models and recording results with symbolic representations 4.3(C) determine if two given fractions are equivalent using a variety
4.3(G) represent fractions and decimals to the tenths or hundredths as distances from zero on a number line
4.3(E) represent and solve addition and subtraction of fractions with equal denominators using objects and pictorial models that
build to the number line and properties of operations
4.3(F) evaluate the reasonableness of sums and differences of fractions using benchmark fractions 0, 1/4, 1/2, 3/4, and 1, referring
to the same whole
