Data Collection, Bar Graphs and Exercise ScienceBy Jenna Richter | March 31, 2016 | Uncategorized
Today’s math activity incorporated several math concepts as well as exercise. We built a chart to record how many times students could do simple exercises in a thirty second period. We included arm circles, jumping, rolling side to side and high knees. Students took turns counting for each other and recording data.
After we collected all the data, we noticed it was confusing to compare the numbers so we decided to make a bar graph for each kind of exercise. On our graph, each square represented five repetitions.
We counted up to 83, we compared numbers and used a graph to make our data visual. We learned about estimating and measuring for named periods of time, in this case thirty second intervals. We exercised, which was great because we have super Spring energy.
