The third graders are hard at work learning about graphing in math. Students are learning how to read, interpret, and create various types of graphs to solve real-world problems. Students are understanding that bar graphs are used to compare data, while line plots show how the data is grouped, compared, and spread. As the graphing concepts become increasingly complex by grade, the graphs used in third grade often have scales with skips of two or greater. Students have enjoyed learning about and graphing many real-world data examples, such as charting weather patterns in New York City and graphing the largest living sea creatures.
