Our Bar Graphs

The students in my math class created their own frequency tables based on a topic they constructed. They surveyed the class to collect data and created a bar graph on chart paper. Then, we went to to construct our digital bar graphs. Please take a look at a few examples of the students' work. They developed a few questions they would like you to solve by reading their bar graphs!

Krystal's Graph

I created this graph becuase I thought it would be fun to create and see if kids could figure out the questions I write.
1. How many more people like fries than hot wings?
2. How many total people like fried chicken and hot dogs?

Brian's Graph

I wanted to survey the class to see the different sports people liked.
1. What sport did people like the most?
2. How many people like wrestling and hockey?

Jadah's Graph

1. How many students like pancakes and waffles?
2. Which two foods did students like the same amount?

Yasmin's Graph

I made this graph because it looked interesting to ask people about their favorite foods.
1. How many students like pizza, hot wings, and enchiladas?
2. What's the difference between pizza and hot wings?

Julian's Graph

I made my graph because I wanted to show how many students like different types of cars.
1. Do more people like Vipers or Mustangs?
2. How many students like Lamborghinis than Lowriders?

Moving Right Along.

The school year has almost reached December. The weather is cooling of dramatically and we're starting to transfer from shorts and t-shirts to jeans and jackets. As the year has progressed we have increasingly used technology in our classroom. From the Smart Board to the "Clickers," we are becoming more familiar with how we use technology in the classroom. So, it's time to discover the internet. Soon, we will begin blogging as a class and developing our internet presence. Let's buckle up and get ready for a new phases of learning!
