3rd Grade Math: Creating & Interpreting Graphs - Chapter Summary
The lessons available in this chapter can be used to instruct 3rd-grade students about how to create and interpret different types of graphs. The chapter has been divided into smaller lessons, and each lesson focuses on a particular type of graph. This way parents, teachers, and students can use the chapter menu to quickly spot the lessons that go over each specific type of graph. Not only do the lessons provide definitions of each graph type, but they also encourage students to practice gathering real-life data to us in graph building. This type of practice is exactly what your students need to get a stronger grasp on this mathematics topic.
- Interpreting and reading bar graphs
- Gathering data to turn into bar graphs
- Learning to read pictographs
- Collecting information for making pictographs
- Finding out how to understand tally charts
- Putting collected data into tally chart form
1. Reading & Interpreting Bar Graphs
In this lesson, you will learn about the parts of a bar graph and what they mean. You will look at the title, labels, and bars of data, and then you can practice reading and interpreting a sample bar graph.
2. Practice with Bar Graphs
Bar graphs tell you how much you have of different things, but that's not all they can tell you! In this lesson, we'll practice reading and analyzing bar graphs, and we'll also learn how to use them to compare amounts.
3. Line Graphs: Lesson for Kids
Graphs are often used in math, science, and business to represent data. Different types of graphs emphasize different aspects of data. In this lesson you will learn about the function of line graphs and how to read the parts of a line graph.
4. Recording & Graphing Outcomes of a Simple Event: Lesson for Kids
There are times that you may want to share information in ways other than with words alone. That's when a graph may be helpful! In this lesson, we'll cover three easy ways to share information without words.
