Standards for the lesson planTutoring 3: Learning to Make Bar Graphs

National Standards Connections

National Science Education Standards (NSES): Science as inquiry
• Abilities necessary to do scientific inquiry
• Use data to construct a reasonable explanation. (K-4)
• Use appropriate tools and techniques to gather, analyze, and interpret data. (5-8)
• Use mathematics in all aspects of scientific inquiry. (5-8)
• Use technology and mathematics to improve investigations and communications. (9-12)
National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), Standards for School Mathematics: Data Analysis and Probability
• Formulate questions that can be addressed with data and collect, organize, and display relevant data to answer them
• Represent data using concrete objects, pictures, and graphs. (PK-2)
• Represent data using tables and graphs such as line plots, bar graphs, and line graphs. (3-5)
• Recognize the difference in representing categorical and numerical data. (3-5)
• Select, create, and use appropriate graphical representations of data, including histograms, box plots, and scatterplots. (6-8)
• Select and use appropriate statistical methods to analyze data
• Describe parts of the data and the set of data as a whole to determine what the data show. (PK-2)
• Describe the shape and important features of a set of data and compare related data sets, with emphasis on how the data are distributed (3-5)
• Use measurers of center, focusing on the median, and understand what each does and does not indicate abut the data set (3-5)
• Compare different representations of the same data and evaluate how well each representation shows important aspects of the data (3-5)
• Find, use, and interpret measures of center and spread, including mean and interquartile range (6-8)
• Discuss and understand the correspondence between data sets and their graphical representations, especially histograms ... (6-8)
• Develop and evaluate inferences and predictions that are based on data

• Construct and draw inferences from charts, tables, and graphs that summarize data from real-world situations. (NCTM) ?? This is simple and concise, but where is this stated this way in NCTM?
