1. How to Organize Data with Charts & Graphs
Research is only valuable if you can share the data effectively. In this lesson, we'll learn how to organize data and construct various charts and graphs to represent research data.
2. Representing Data through Picture Graphs
In this lesson, we will learn how picture graphs are great tools to organize, represent, and interpret data. Also, we will explore the functions and features of picture graphs.
3. 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.
4. Reading and Interpreting Line Graphs
Watch this video lesson to find out how useful line graphs can be and how much information you can gain just from looking at one. Learn how you can apply that information in your own life to help you make better decisions.
5. Teaching Students to Interpret & Create Graphs
Elementary school teachers teach primary math skills, which includes helping students learn to read, interpret, and create different kinds of graphs. This lesson offers proven strategies that assist young learners in developing these skills.
6. Using Tables and Graphs in the Real World
We use tables and graphs in algebra as ways to visually show an equation or function. But do we really use these in the real world? Is it that important to learn about tables and graphs? Find out in this video lesson.
