MATH - Communication about data

Asakamu alaykum Parents!

I wanted to update you about our math class. we are well into our Data Management Unit. We have explored and used the following
We have now learned a new lesson called "Communication about data" - students are required to interpret displays of data and discuss them using math language. 

For example: If you have a bar graph about "Hours Spent Sleeping in a day"

Looking at the graph I am about to communicate the following information 
  • The graph is a bar graph 
  • Each square on the graph means 5 hours of sleep
  • The brown bat sleeps the most.
  • The giraffe doesn't sleep very long.
  • The chimpanzee and the red fox both asleep for 10 hours.
Students should check for the following 
  • Did you use the right amount of detail
  • did you use math language
