Earlier in the course, students used scaled picture graphs and bar graphs to represent data sets with several categories. In this lesson, they collect a large data set by surveying others at the school. In the next lesson, they represent the data on scaled picture graphs and bar graphs.
Students should survey at least several classes, as many as time and circumstances permit. The lesson may take 2 or 3 days depending on the survey size.
If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 1, Section A in the curriculum materials.
