This lesson worksheet simplifies the process of making circle graphs, also called pie graphs. These are some of the most challenging graphs for elementary and middle school students to create.
On this sheet, instead of finding exact fractions or percents, students are guided through a four-step process that creates a "good enough" graph for elementary grades and standardized tests. This is **not** a lesson that practices precise measurements; rather, it provides pointers for analysis, synthesis, and estimation.
Students are taught to analyze the data and evaluate how large each slice of the graph should be. Then they will create their own graph from the data provided.
