Graph and Answer
The purpose of this lesson is for students to draw a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories.
In a previous lesson, students used a survey to collect data. In this lesson, they represent their data set with a scaled bar graph. Then, students ask and answer questions about the information presented in their scaled bar graphs.
If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 1, Section A in the curriculum materials.
- Draw a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories.
- Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs.
- Let’s represent our data on scaled bar graphs and answer questions about the data.

Teacher Reflection Questions
As students worked in their small groups today, whose ideas were heard, valued, and accepted? How can you adjust the group structure tomorrow to ensure each student’s ideas are a part of the collective learning?
