Applying Connections
  Introduction | Graphs | Dealing with Data | Classroom Practice | Connections in Action | Classroom Checklist | Your Journal


Now that you are familiar with the Standard and some of its aspects, we would like you to apply what you've learned. In this section, we will see how Delia Hakim and Christine Confer, teachers of a first-grade multilingual class, structure a lesson on collecting and analyzing data as part of a science unit. But before we look at this class, we will take a look at connections within the context of data collection and representation.

The collection and organization of information naturally links to situations that are of interest to young students and to other subject areas. Clear organization and representation of data help students make inferences and justify their thinking.

In this activity, we will look at several types of graphs -- some that you may already be familiar with and others that may be new to you. Remember, the purpose of the exercise is for you to apply and stretch your mathematical understanding.
