Grade:
 Grade 6
Subject:
 Math

Topic:
 Recording Data on a Coordinate Graph
Content:
 A graph is a drawing designed to illustrate a relationship between two or more sets of values of variables. Coordinate graphs use ordered pairs of numbers to designate a single point on a grid that represents two variables at one. EXAMPLE: the two variables for a shoe graph would be shoe size and the number of people who wear each size. (4,7) would mean four people wear size seven.
Goals:
 The activities in this chapter teach students the basic techniques of assembling coordinate graphs. Need to edit.
Objectives:
 These graphs are best used to show functional relationships, in which a first number is related to a second one so that for every value of the first number there is a unique corresponding value to the second. Need to edit.
Materials:
 Paper, pencil, formulated chart to record data
Introduction:
 What Goes into running a bike tour business. Read story of all the planning that goes into running a Bicycle Touring Business. That you will doing a simulation of one day of the tour.
Development:
 One feature of the business is to average the number of hours of biking for one day for a typical college student. Simulate an endurance activity. Have tree student demonstrate how to record the activity.
Practice:
 Record data accurately. Produce a written description their role in today's lesson. Each student should have a product at the end of the lesson: a table of data recording the number of jumping jacks totals for persons in their group.
Accommodations:
 Groups of 3 students. May have to move furniture.
Checking For Understanding:
 Have each student in the group check their data table.
Closure:
 Talk about predicting what other groups data will look like . What might be the range? What do we expect will happen when people do strenueous exercise over time.
Evaluation:
 Use Sarah's Exit Pass.
