Construct a stem-and-leaf plot to organize and display data, where the stem is listed in ascending order and the leaves are in ascending order, with or without commas between leaves.
At this level, the number of categories on a pictograph should be limited to four when a student is creating a graph, and six when a student is interpreting and analyzing a graph.
The axis displaying the scale that represents the count for the categories should begin at zero and extend one increment above the greatest recorded piece of data. In grade two, students should collect data that are recorded in increments of whole numbers limited to multiples of 1, 2, or 5.
Organize the data into a chart, table, stem-and-leaf plots, and line graphs.
The key should be provided for the symbol in a pictograph graph when the symbol represents more than one piece of data (e.g., [a picture of a stick person] represents five people in a graph). At this level, each symbol should represent 1, 2, 5, or 10 pieces of data.
