Teach your students how to read and interpret a line graph, bar graph, or pie chart from a word problem or given data. Challenge your students to think more critically and become better mathematicians. Start your students on their way to becoming better problem graphic interpreters.
A teacher’s guide entitled “Learn to Read Graphs” is included. An answer guide for each activity is also provided.
Some common core standards met by this activity will be:
CCSS.Math.Content.2.MD.D.10. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems1 using information presented in a bar graph.
CCSS.Math.Content.2.G.A.3 Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.MD.B.3 . Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, given a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
