Math: Data Collection and Graphing

Activity: Collect a set of data and then graph it. Ex: How many of each color M&Ms are in my package of M&Ms, what new piece of playground equipment do students want added to the playground, how many siblings do people in the class have.

Tip: Take a photo of your completed graph. Use the voice recorder tool to explain your results.

Supports Common Core:  CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.MD.B.3. Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step "how many more" and "how many less" problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
