Lesson 5 Represent Data in Scaled Bar Graphs
Let’s make a scaled bar graph.
Warmup Number Talk: Twos and Fives
Find the value of each expression mentally.
Activity 1 Compare Bar Graphs
A class was asked, “How do you get home from school?” Their responses are shown in these two bar graphs:
Discuss with your partner: How are the two graphs alike? How are they different?
Activity 2 Create a Scaled Bar Graph
Represent the data we collected earlier in a scaled bar graph.
Use the graph with a scale of 2 or the graph with a scale of 5. If you have time, you can make 2 graphs. Be sure to label your title and categories.
Practice Problem
