More Questions about Scaled Bar Graphs
The purpose of this lesson is for students to solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many fewer” problems, based on data presented in a scaled bar graph.
This lesson introduces Three Reads (MLR 6) to support students in making sense of and solving situations. In this lesson students continue to interpret graphs that represent quantities that are not exact multiples of the scale and require students to estimate values. As a result, answers may vary slightly. Accept all answers that align to reasonable estimates.
- Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many fewer” problems within 100, based on the data presented in scaled bar graphs.
- Let’s solve problems using data shown on bar graphs.

Teacher Reflection Questions
Who got to do math today in class and how do you know? Identify the norms or routines that allowed those students to engage in mathematics. How can you adjust these norms and routines so all students do math tomorrow?
