Key Facts & Information
- At the end of the lesson, the student will learn how to generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole and then making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.
A NOTE FOR THE TEACHER
- When generating measurement data, take note of the following:
- Know if all the data have the same unit.
- Create a horizontal line similar to the characteristics of a number line that has equal intervals of tick marks.
- Dots are placed above the value of the data. Multiple dots can be placed.
- Measurements can show trends and patterns of certain objects.
- For example, the length of a growing plant can be measured multiple times to observe the growth of its height.
- With these measurements, we can collect data. These measurement data can be represented by different tables and graphs. A common representation of data is shown by a line plot. It is a graph that shows data using a number line.
- A line plot has different parts:
- First, the number line that includes all the values in the data set. In this lesson’s context, the values in the number line are measurement values to the nearest whole numbers. Next, dots are placed above each data value (or each measurement) on the number line. We should note that when a value occurs more than once in the data set, a new dot is placed above the data value on the number line. Occurrences may happen more than once; thus, just place a dot above if it happens.
- Consider the table containing the length of 5 sticks in inches:
- Converting this data into a line plot, we will create a number line that contains the range of whole numbers. The data ranges from 1 inch to 5 inches. Next, we will place dots above the corresponding length of the plant. Note that there are two sticks that measure 4 inches; thus, two dots will be seen above 4.
- This will be the line plot for the generated measurement data:
