1 Teacher s Guide Grade Level: 3-5 Curriculum Focus: Mathematics Lesson Duration: Four class periods Program Description Discovering Math: Using and Collecting Data From data points and determining spread to creating and reading graphs and charts, introduce elementary students to more advanced concepts of statistics and data analysis. Lesson Plan Student Objectives Use data to represent specific pieces of information about real-world objects or activities. Use a number line to identify and demonstrate extremes, where the points pile up, and where the gaps are. Demonstrate the ability to collect, organize, and display data in number lines, bar graphs, pie charts, and line graphs. Explain that data come in many forms and that collecting, organizing, and displaying data can be done in many ways. Demonstrate how a sample predicts the characteristics of a large set and explain the effects of sample size. Materials Discovering Math: Using and Collecting Data video Calculator Tape measure Height of Students Data Chart (see below) Examples of bar graph, line graph, and circle graph Bar Graph Data Chart (see below) Graph paper Computer with internet access

2 Teacher s Guide 2 Line Graph Data Chart (see below) Circle Graph Data Chart (see below) Circle Graph Template (see below) Procedures 1. Discuss how data was displayed on number lines in the video segment about horse heights. Recall that wider intervals yield less precise graphic representations, but make it easier to identify larger patterns within the data. Tell students they will be collecting data and displaying it on a number line plot. Note: This activity works best with at least 20 or more students. If the class is smaller than that, try combining data from two classes. Distribute a copy of Height of Students Data Chart to each student. Have students work with a partner to find their height in inches using a tape measure. When all students have measured and recorded their height, ask each to share their height with the class. Students should record the height data on their charts. Once data is collected, have students set up number line on paper using a ruler. Use the following intervals Have students record each height over the correct interval on the number line. When number line plot is complete ask students to write three factual statements about the pattern on data on the plot. They should share and explain their statements, referring to the number line plot in their explanations. o Extension: Have students increase interval spans and re-plot the data. Ask them to explain the benefits of altering the intervals. 2. Display the words mean, median, range, and mode. Discuss the meaning of each word, having students share their thoughts and ideas. mean: the average value of a data set median: the middle number in a data set

3 Teacher s Guide 3 range: the difference between the greatest number and the least number in a set of data mode: the number found most often in a set of data Display a sample set of numbers and model how to calculate the mean, median, range, and mode of the data set. Have students list the data from their Height of Student Data Chart from least to greatest. Then calculate the mean, median, range, and mode of the data set. Discuss the process they used to find the mean, median, range, and mode of the data set. Have them share their thoughts and ideas on why the information is important and how it can be used to summarize the number line plot. Have students summarize the number line plot in writing. They should include a statement about the mean, median, range, and mode of the data set in their summary. 3. Display examples of a bar graph, line graph, and circle graph. Ask students to compare the graphs and share their thoughts on the use of each type. Bar graphs are used to compare data. Line graphs are used to show change over time. Circle graphs are used to show parts of a whole. Tell students they will be collecting, organizing, and displaying data in bar graphs, line graphs, and circle graphs. Distribute a copy of the Bar Graph Data Chart to each student. Survey the class and have students share and record their favorite type of book. Review the important parts of a bar graph: title, labels on each axis, and an appropriate scale. Have students set up bar graph to display the data they collected on their Bar Graph Data Chart. They should use graph paper to create their bar graph. Ask students to write three summary statements about the data in the bar graph. They can write statements comparing pieces of the data, identifying the least liked and most liked type of book, etc. Have students share and explain their summary statements with the class. 4. Display a sample line graph and review its format and uses. Tell students they will create a line graph to display and compare the average monthly temperatures in their city or town (or another area determined by the teacher if their town is not listed). Assign each student a partner. Have each pair go to and following the links to their city or town. Distribute a copy of the Line Graph Data Chart to each pair. Have them record the average monthly temperature for their chosen area on the chart. Review the important parts of a line graph: title, labels on each axis, and an appropriate scale.

Data as Information: Introduction Data is defined as information gathered for a purpose to aid decision-making and problem solving. Data can be qualitative or quantitative. Example 1: Qualitative Data Qualitative data gives information about qualities color, size, or shape. It can be used right away to make decisions. Examples of qualitative data are explained. Example 2: Qualitative and Quantitative Data Farmers gather qualitative and quantitative data on crops. Qualitative data pertains to soil type and nutrients. Quantitative data pertains to the number of sunny or rainy days and the crops weight. Example 3: Automated Data Recording Weather forecasters use land stations, ocean stations, and satellites to gather data about the weather. They use the quantitative data to predict weather and upcoming storms. II. Data Distribution (7 min.) Data Distribution: Introduction Plotting data is a useful way to organize and understand information. It is important to understand the data when making decisions. Example 1: Number Line Plots Data can be represented on a number line. Placing one dot for each piece of data on the number line provides a useful visual representation. A number line is modeled. Example 2: Stacking Data in Line Plots Stacking data on a number line is a useful way to organize and represent information. By stacking data, more can be plotted, extremes can be identified, and substantial gaps can be found. Example 3: Line Plots with Wider Bins Increasing the intervals on the line plot makes data more usable. Although the data isn t as exact, it is easy to identify patterns and broader groups of information. Broadening the intervals is modeled.

9 Teacher s Guide 9 III. IV. Summarizing Data (8 min.) Summarizing Data: Introduction Summarizing and comparing data is important. Median is the middle number in a data set, mode is the number occurring most often, and range is the difference between the greatest and least number in the data. Example 1: Center and Spread Summarizing and comparing data by finding the median, mode, and range is modeled and explained. The importance of summarizing data is reiterated. Example 2: Calculating the Mean Calculating the mean is explained and modeled. The mean is the average value of a data set. In swimming, the mean is calculated by dividing the total score by the number of scores. Example 3: Mean, Median, Range and Overall Distribution A rider s scores are used to find the mean, median, and range. Normal distribution is described; in large sets of data, there are fewer low and high numbers as you move away from the center value. Graphing Data (8 min.) Graphing Data: Introduction Graphing finance data helps achieve a saving s goal. Example 1: Bar Graphs A bar graph compares the different amounts of money earned in three jobs. Creating a bar graph is explained and modeled. Example 2: Circle Graphs Circle graphs show the parts of a whole and the relationship between each part. Creating a circle graph to show how much time was spent on three jobs is explained and modeled. Example 3: Line Graphs A line graph shows change over time. Creating a line graph to show how much money was earned over three weeks is explained and modeled. V. Reading Graphs (8 min.) Reading Graphs: Introduction Graphs can be used to see trends and patterns in data. Line graphs, bar graphs, and circle graphs are used for different purposes. Example 1: Bar Graphs Bar graphs compare amounts in different situations. A bar graph is used to compare the types of pets that live in U.S. households.

10 Teacher s Guide 10 Example 2: Line Graphs Line graphs show change over time by charting one quantity in relation to another quantity. The quantities are called variables. A line graph is used to track the number of people who exercise regularly. Example 3: Circle Graphs Circle graphs show parts of a whole and how the proportions of something make up the whole. A circle graph is used to show how many collectors in a group collect specific items. VI. VII. Collecting and Handling Data (9 min.) Collecting and Handling Data: Introduction Data is information collected for a purpose. The way data is collected, organized, and displayed depends upon the purpose. Data can be used to solve problems and make decisions. Example 1: Gathering Numerical Data The purpose for collecting data will govern the data collected, the way it is collected, how it is analyzed, and the results of the collection. Example 2: Organizing Data Data can be organized by writing a list, making a graph, creating a chart, or in any other way that makes the data useful and meets the purpose for which it was collected. Example 3: Displaying Data The purpose for collecting data determines the way it is displayed. Use a bar graph to compare, a line graph to show change over time, or a circle graph to show parts of a whole. Sample Size (8 min.) Sample Size: Introduction Samples are used to collect data on populations. A sample is a sub-group of a population. The larger the sample size, the more data that can be collected. Example 1: Sample Size from a Limited Population Looking at one member of a population will not give enough information about the whole population. A larger sample size is more effective for collecting data on a whole population Example 2: Sample Size from a Larger Population When collecting data on a population, the larger the sample size, the more likely it will represent the whole group and the proportions and distribution of characteristics within the group. Example 3: Reliability Based on Sample Size When collecting data on a very large population, a large sample size is necessary to get reliable information on the specific characteristics and composition of the population.
