Math Homework for Monday and Tuesday Nights!
Creating a Pictograph
- Decide on something(objects) in your house that you can divide into categories
and then count using tally marks. (Example: types of shoes, silverware, color of shirts,
types of reading materials)
- Decide on your categories and then create a frequency chart that has your headings down
the left side, and a column for your tally marks on the left.
- Tally your objects.
- Create a pictograph using your frequency chart. Dont forget:
|A key that shows a symbol and how many items it represents.|
|List your categories down the left and put your "pictures" on the right next
to the category.|
- Now, write a paragraph that interprets your graph for us. Tell us:
|How you collected your data|
|Why you chose to use the items you did|
|Which item had the largest/smallest count|
|Which items are close in number|
|What your findings tell you about your household or the people living in it (What did
you learn? Why do you think your results are like they are?)|
