5th Grade April Math lab
Line Plots: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.MD.B.2
Before coming to lab
Before doing the "jump"- students may need a review of "how to read a ruler". A QR code with ruler reading games (link below) has been given to teachers. You can use it before you measure jumps, or after, but knowledge of reading a ruler will help them read a number line in fractions on the Line plot activities for Math lab.
What was our first step in creating a line plot? (putting our data in order)
How did we know where to begin and end our line plot?
What do the small marks between the #'s mean?
What was the shortest jump?
What was the longest jump?
What length came up the most (mode)?
What is the difference between the longest and shortest jump (range)?
What jump distance was our middle distance (median)?
Why do you think there are so many different lengths?
If we added the jumps of our 2 best jumpers, what would our total be?
How many jumps were measured?
Assessment for Groups
Red- 1/8 inches group (90-100% on Kahoot)
Yellow- 1/4 inches group (60-89% on Kahoot)
Green- 1/2 Below 59% on Kahoot
After being placed into groups, students will read a line plot and then create a line plot with their partner. Teacher can rotate and assist as needed.
