Notes for Session 10, Part B

Note 3

Using line plots (dot plots) in elementary school classrooms is a fairly new practice. Consider how you might use this graphical representation of data with your students. For example, when working with pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students, you might have the students begin with pasting the actual boxes on the charts instead of using dots. How does this compare with your current method of presenting data?

You may want to refer back to Interpreting a Line Plot in Session 2.

Note 4

Comparing data sets is also a fairly new practice in elementary school classrooms. Think about why this step might be important for your students. You might also want to review the difference between quantitative and qualitative variables. Session 1, Part B: Data Measurement and Variation
