Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades

The student will a) collect, organize, and represent data in pictographs or bar graphs; and b) read and interpret data represented in pictographs and bar graphs.

Describe the categories of data and the data as a whole (e.g., data were collected on preferred ways to cook or prepare eggs — scrambled, fried, hard boiled, and egg salad). (b)
Understand that picture graphs use pictures to represent and compare data while object graphs use concrete objects to represent and compare data.
Understand how to interpret collected and organized data.
read and interpret data represented in pictographs and bar graphs.
Statements representing an analysis and interpretation of the characteristics of the data in the graph should be written (e.g., similarities and differences, least and greatest, the categories, and total number of responses).
Statements should also express a prediction based on the analysis and interpretation of the characteristics of the data in the graph (e.g., The lunch room should serve pizza more often since that is the lunch students have liked the most.)
