In this lesson, we will try to understand scaled picture graphs and bar graphs in order to represent a data set with several categories. Aside from that, we will also be measuring lengths using rulers marked with halves and fourths of an inch.
See the fact file below for more information on the representation and interpretation data or alternatively, you can download our 34-page Represent and Interpret Data worksheet pack to utilise within the classroom or home environment.
Key Facts & Information
- Picture graph
- A type of graph that displays data using pictures and symbols.
- Bar graph
- A type of graph that displays data that visually allows for quick and easy conclusions. This can either be vertical (bottom to top) or horizontal (left to right) bars whose lengths represent amounts or numbers.
- The part of a map or graph that explains the symbols.
- Example 1. Elizabeth sold cookies last summer. She made a picture graph to show how many cookies she sold on her first day. She made a table. How can you display the data in a picture graph?
- A bar graph uses bars to show data. A scale of equally spaced numbers helps you read the numbers each bar shows.
- A bar graph needs the following labels: (1) title, (2) categories, (3) category label, (4) number interval, and (5) number interval label.
- In a horizontal bar graph, the bars go across from left to right. The length of the bar shows the number.
- In a vertical bar graph, the bars go up from the bottom. The height of the bar represents the number.
MEASURING HALVES AND FOURTHS OF AN INCH
- By now, you have an idea that that measurements are not always exact to a whole unit.
- We have already established the understanding that not all measurements are exact. Now, we will try to establish an understanding of how some measurements, despite measuring the same object, are different.
LINE PLOTS: DISPLAYING DATA
- Now, we will try to display data in a line plot. To do this, we will use a number line to represent the measurements in whole numbers, halves, and fourths.
