Unit 7 Collecting and Displaying Data Grade 3 Math 


Description: Students apply their knowledge of
fractions from Unit 5 and now will estimate lengths to the nearest halves and
fourths of an inch and record that information in bar graphs and line
plots. Students will answer “how many
more” and “how many less” questions about scaled bar graphs.

Enduring Understandings: ·
Charts,
tables, line plot graphs, pictographs, Venn diagrams, and bar graphs may be
used to display data. ·
One
way to compare data is through the use of graphs. ·
The
scale increments used when making a bar graph is determined by the scale
intervals being graphed. 
Essential Questions: ·
How are tables, bar graphs, and
line plot graphs useful ways to display data? ·
How do I decide what increments to
use for my scale? ·
How can you use graphs? ·
How can surveys be used? ·
How can graphs be used to display
and compare data gathered from a survey? ·
How can data displayed in tables
and graphs be used to inform? ·
How are a bar graph and a line
plot related? What are their differences?
