In this lesson, we will try to understand how we can use line plots to represent and interpret fractional data.
See the fact file below for more information on the line plots or alternatively, you can download our 28-page Line Plots worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
- In this section, we will start with simple data sets composed of fractions with similar denominators.
- How can we represent these data sets using line plots?
- Given 4 chances, how many times did 6 people flip a coin and land on heads?
- Since we know that there are 4 chances, meaning there are 4 equal parts, then we can divide the line plot.
- We can now assign a symbol that would represent a person.
- This symbol will be used for the line plot.
- Now, how do we interpret the line plot above?
- Since the circles represent one person, we can interpret the line plot like this:
- Given four chances, one person was able to flip a coin that landed on heads once.
- Given four chances, three people were able to flip their coins, which landed on heads twice.
- Given four chances, two people were able to flip their coins, which landed on heads thrice.
- No person was able to flip a coin and land on heads four times.
- In the previous section, our data set contains fractions of similar denominators. This time, our data set will be composed of fractions of different denominators.
- The method to plot fractions of different denominators is to make all the denominators the same.
- LCD – Least common denominator is the lowest common multiple of the denominators.
- All we need to do now is to change the fractions in a way that their denominators will change to LCD.
