This professional development video clip shows students in a bilingual classroom engaged in the Common Core Practice Standard #3-Construct viable arguments for conclusions reached and critique the reasoning of others. Students observe ladybugs and collect data in order to answer quantitative questions-What is the the number of antennae, heads, mouths, feet, and wings. The individual data is compiled into a class chart and the learners compare and discuss data as a class. Additional resources include a video transcript, teaching tips, and a link to a professional development reflection activity based upon the video.

This page of videos is designed to showcase classrooms in which the NCTM Process Standards are evident. Scroll to video #45, and select the "VoD" box to view the 20-minute Cranberry Estimation video. Second-graders in Massachusetts estimate the number of scoops of cranberries that will fit in a jar. They report, graph, and discuss group estimates with the class as the concepts of range, mode, and median emerge. Observe as the teacher leads the class in developing strategies, learning about new concepts, and sharing and organizing results.

This narrative document describes the progression of Categorical and Measurement Data across the K-5 grade band. It is informed both by research on children's cognitive development and by the logical structure of mathematics. The document discusses the most important goals for data collection, display, and analysis; beginning with categorical data in grades k-2 and progressing to measurement data in grades 2-5.

In this lesson plan students gather data about the items that they would normally throw in the trash. Once students collect the data they create a bar graph to display the number and kinds of materials they discard and then use this data to create a plan to reduce garbage and help the environment. The lesson plan includes an activity sheet (PDF) for graphing data and extension activity suggestions.

In this lesson activity students use nonstandard units (baby steps) to measure lengths of different types of "steps" (giant, regular, umbrella, scissor, wooden-soldier, and backwards steps). Once each student gathers this data they will display their own data on a bar graph. Then the class will discuss the data and compare graphs among students. A students worksheet for data collection is included in PDF format.

In this lesson activity students create visual representations for the data presented in the book, "If the World Were a Village" by David J Smith and Shelagh Armstrong. Students are challenged to create different representations and reason why one representation may be better than another. Suggested representations are pictographs, bar graphs, and tables. The activity includes the problem, teacher notes, hints, and solution suggestions.
