Math Activity: Interactive Graphs
Graphs are great tools for visualizing data. In this activity you can create and print three types of categorical graphs using your own data: circle graphs, bar graphs and double bar graphs.
Circle graphs are great for finding the percentages of a whole. (The ratio of animals on a farm.)
Bar graphs are are great for counting unique units. (The different colors in a bag of candy.)
Double bar graphs are used for comparing two different parts of a set. (Democrats Vs. Republicans in Congress.)

Students enhance computational and problem-solving skills while learning topics in algebra, geometry, probability, and statistics. They solve expressions and equations in the context of perimeter, area, and volume problems while further developing computational skills with fractions and decimals. The study of plane and solid figures includes construction and transformations of figures. Also in the context of problem solving, students add, subtract, multiply, and divide positive and negative integers and solve problems involving ratios, proportions, and percents, including simple and compound interest, rates, discount, tax, and tip problems. They learn multiple representations for communicating information, such as graphs on the coordinate plane, statistical data and displays, as well as the results of probability and sampling experiments. They investigate patterns involving addition, multiplication, and exponents, and apply number theory and computation to mathematical puzzles.
