## Common Core State Standards for Mathematics

Grade(s) 3 resources related to the following standard:
Measurement and Data
Represent and interpret data.
3. Draw a scaled picture graph and 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. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.

This Mixing in Math activity combines data collection and analysis by having learners track attendance over time, in order to identify trends in data. Students count and record how many of the group are present and absent each day for at least a week. Discussion involves the range, the minimum and the maximum values and to look for other patterns in how many show up on which days. Variations of the activity, a printable version in pdf format, and two book recommendations are included.

In this article from "The Statistics Teacher Network", volume 79 pages 2-5, Jessica Cohen explains where and how Statistics and Probability fit into the Common Core State Standards. Cohen explains grade by grade where statistics fits into the CCSS standards and then explains how probability fits in even though there are no probability standards prior to Grade 6.

This lesson plan assesses student interpretation of graphs utilizing cooperative learning to further students understanding. Types of graphs used are horizontal and vertical bar graphs, picture graphs, and pictographs. In the lesson students play a game called the Graphing Game Show, in which they must work as a team to answer questions about specific graphs. The lesson includes four student resource worksheets and suggestions for extension and differentiation.

In this statistics lesson plan (PDF format), students follow the four components of statistical problem solving as outlined in the GAISE report, in order to determine whether the color of a drink effects its taste. Once students have collected the data from two different sample groups they must create a pie chart (circle graph) or a bar graph to represent each set of data. Student then analyze the data and determine what marketing implications their experiment would indicate. The lesson plan includes, a data collection sheet, assessment, and possible extension suggestions.

In this statistics lesson plan, students gather information using the Internet about party affiliation and age at time of inauguration of current and past Presidents in order to construct a bar graph and a histogram. Once all of the data is collected students work together to complete the appropriate data displays and compare and contrast their findings. The lesson plan includes questions for reflection and discussion, student activity sheet, answer key, and an assessment option activity sheet and answer key.
