Lesson 5 Represent Measurement Data on Line Plots
Let’s collect measurement data and show them on a line plot.
Warm-up Number Talk: Multiply Teen Numbers
Find the value of each expression mentally.
Activity 1 Go for a Measurement Walk
What objects will you measure?
Record the lengths of the objects in the table (or on another sheet of paper).
Activity 2 Let’s Make a Line Plot
Create a line plot to represent the measurement data you collected. You will display and share your line plot with your class later.
You can use the blank number line here for your draft. Think about:
how to label the tick marks so that all the measurements are included
details to help others understand the data you collected
Here are the lengths of some straws in inches. Represent the data on a line plot.
