Data Collection and Tally Table- Candy Edition!

Collecting information about people, places and things can be really interesting. How we organize the information we collect is very important also! There are some simple things that need to happen before you can make a graph about information. First, you must decide on a question you would like to ask. Some questions are better for making graphs than others. A question that only has one answer (like a "yes" or "no" question) wont make a very interesting graph or tell you very much information. Your question should give people choices. You should be able to gather data and then think about what it is telling you. Check out the example about sports. My question today is "what is your favorite Halloween candy?" See what the data tells you! 1. Click the add to add a response. 2. Check out the examples of good questions on slide two. 3. Check out the example question and data on slide three. 4. On slide four use the drawing tool, label, or make a video to share the totals of each favorite candy. Use the drawing to show the data in tallies. Complete the table. 5. Answer the question on slide five about the data. Use the mic, video label or drawing tool to answer the question. 6. Try the challenge on slide six if you are up for it! Use any tool to complete it. 7. Click the check when you are finished to submit your work! Dont forget to listen to the captions on each slide! Click the caption button!
