  1. Introduction to Coordinate Graphing

    Introduce elementary students to coordinate graphing through seasonal coloring activities.   The fall Jack-O-Lantern activity requires students to use the grid code and crayons or markers to create a jack-o-lantern on a blank 9x9 grid.   The use of letters on the horizontal axis and numbers on the vertical axis introduces young students to coordinate pairs without the confusion of the standard (h,v) format.   Notice that it is important that elementary students become accustomed to listing the horizontal coordinate first as this will transfer to the Cartesian coordinates they will use in later grades.

  5.  Understand equivalence and extend the concept to situations involving symbols; e.g., 4 + 5 = 9 and 9 = 4 + 5, and 4 + 5 = 3 + 6 = ∆ + □…

 

 

  6.  Use symbols to represent unknown quantities and identify values for symbols in an expression or equation using addition and subtraction; e.g., □ + О = 10, ∆ - 2 = 4.

 

 

7. Describe qualitative and quantitative changes, especially those involving addition and subtraction; e.g., a student growing taller versus a student growing two inches in one year.

    bulletThe spreadsheet will allow the user to enter data and labels for up to 8 items, while dynamically updating the bar graph.
    bullet
    Begin by replacing the labels in the table with the words you want.
    bullet

  1. Bar Graph  You will notice that this bar graph has been adjusted to allow you to look at the results totally different from what is true. Look carefully to see the reason how the second graph is not written correctly. Two different bar graphs are made from the same survey of favorite foods. The students need to determine which graph is more fair and why, by studying the graphs and altering the data.

     

6. Recognize that data may vary from one population to another; e.g., favorite TV shows of students and of parents.  

7.   List some of the possible outcomes of a simple experiment, and predict whether given outcomes are more, less or equally likely to occur.
