In this packet you will receive:
• Bar/Line Review WS
• Bar/Line Plotting Mats
• Bar/Line Challenge WS
• 8 sets of data 4Line, 4 Bar
• 1 set of Title, X axis, Y axis data for each of the data sets
Bar/Line Graph Review:
o Students review the differences between a bar graph and line graph and how to select between the two.
o Given multiple examples, the student will decide if the data is being compared or changed over time, and then decide which type of graph would be best suited to the example.
o Students will then create two of their own examples of data and which type of graph would be best.
Bar/Line Graph Plotting
o Students will use the Bar and Line Graph Mats
o Given two sets of data (one bar, one line) students must determine which is which and use the mats to lay out the appropriate title, x axis, and y axis, and then plot the points
o Also included on the mat is an interval set up helping students decide what increments their y-axis should be in dependent on the data they have received
Bar/Line Graph Challenge
o Students will use their Challenge sheet and one set of data to create their own graph.
o NOTE: THIS ACTIVITY DOES NOT USE THE TITLE, X AXIS, Y AXIS cards. Students must instead figure this out for themselves.
