EVERGREEN [DAY 4]

DATA AND FRACTIONS

Dive into this 5-day Problem Based Math Unit focused on displaying a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit.

Intentionality & Unit Overview

Access each lesson from this unit using the navigation links below

Students will continue exploring line plots and stem and leaf plots to display categorical data sets with measurements in fractions of a unit and determining the range of a data set.

Intentionalityâ€¦

The purpose of the Day 4 activities is to reinforce key concepts from Day 1. Students will engage in a math talk and will have an opportunity to complete independent purposeful practice. The math talk and purposeful practice serve to develop a deeper understanding of the following big ideas.Â

• There are different types of data;
• Categorical data refers to a data type that can be identified based on the names or labels given to them;
• Categorical data is either nominal or ordinal;Â
• Bar graphs are used to compare and contrast numbers, frequencies or other measures of distinct categories of data;
• The numerical values of a data set need to be considered when a scale is chosen;
• A fraction can represent a part of a whole;
• The range is the difference between the lowest and highest values within a data set;Â
• The range is calculated by subtracting the lowest value from the highest value.
