Standards with the same topic and subject but for other grades
Collect data on categories identified by the teacher and/or student (e.g., number of siblings, types/numbers of pets, types of flowers in the garden). Data points, collected by students, should be limited to 16 or fewer for no more than four categories. (a)
- Probability and Statistics
The student will a) collect, organize, and represent data; and b) read and interpret data in object graphs, picture graphs, and tables.
The student will use problem solving, mathematical communication, mathematical reasoning, connections, and representations to
Represent data by arranging concrete objects into organized groups to form a simple object graph. (a)
Represent gathered data, using pictures to form a simple picture graph (e.g., a picture graph of the weather for a month). (a)
Represent gathered data in tables (vertically or horizontally). (a)
collect, organize, and represent data; and
Tables are an orderly arrangement of data in columns and rows in an essentially rectangular format. Tables may be used to display numerical relationships or to organize lists.
At this level, data gathered and displayed by students should be limited to 16 or fewer data points for no more than four categories.
In the process of collecting data, students make decisions about what is relevant to their investigation (e.g., when collecting data on their classmates’ favorite pets, deciding to limit the categories to common pets).
When students begin to collect data, they recognize the need to categorize, which helps develop the understanding of “things that go together.” Categorical data are used when constructing picture graphs and bar graphs.
Object graphs are graphs that use concrete materials to represent the categorical data that are collected (e.g., cubes stacked by the month, with one cube representing the birthday month of each student).
