Are you keeping track of how many times your students forgot to turn in their assignments? Do you take note of how many times your students are late to class? If so, you have perfect data to display in a line plot. If you are looking to visually represent the frequency of data along a number line, a line plot is the graph to use.
In the activity, Line Plots, students will create, interpret and analyze line plots. They will have the opportunity to record individual rolls of their own number cube and represent their findings in a line plot. They will also analyze existing line plots and answer specific questions relating to that plot. This activity provides great practice for students exploring line plots.
