Objectives: a. Collect and record data about quantities of real objects, or characters on a screen b. Create a bar graph and pie chart to represent simple data. c. Make comparisons between data visualizations made by others and use them to make a prediction. 1. Go to https://studio.code.org/s/coursec-2020/stage/17/puzzle/2 2. Press Run and wait for the wizard to finish. 3. Take a screenshot 4. Press and paste it on page 1. 5. Use the picture to count the animals on the table on page 1. 6. On page 2, create a bar graph representing one bar per animal. 7. On page 3, create a pie chart coloring one slice per animal. Differentiation: All students must create a tally and a bar graph for one of the animals. Most students will create a tally and a bar graph for most of the animals. Some students will create a tally, a bar graph and a circular graph for all the animals, carefully color-coded.
This activity corresponds to code.org's course C, lesson 17. The full lesson plan can be found here: https://curriculum.code.org/csf-20/coursec/17/ There are slides ready here: https://docs.google.com/presentation/d/116qFNNE1y5Hre2Gkt-KS4tyi7eu_hxm6QoJkQWtl80A/edit#slide=id.gc76f984469_0_0 The standards addressed are STA K-12 Computer Science Standards (2017) DA - Data & Analysis 1A-DA-05 - Store, copy, search, retrieve, modify, and delete information using a computing device and define the information stored as data. 1A-DA-06 - Collect and present the same data in various visual formats. 1A-DA-07 - Identify and describe patterns in data visualizations, such as charts or graphs, to make predictions. and also cross-curricular with Math, Common Core Math Standards MD - Measurement And Data 2.MD.10 - Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put- together, take-apart, and compare problems4 using information presented in a bar graph.
