You mentioned trying to make a pie chart. I have daily graphs in my class - the temperature line graph and weather type bar graph. What I've done though is create a bar graph for the month. So at the end of every month, my kids create a pie chart of the type of weather we saw that month. Great way of learning angles to the nearest degree also when creating the pie chart.Mr Williamshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/05470248862598182217noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3633682260880990043.post-30532921629402514342012-08-01T05:28:40.726-07:002012-08-01T05:28:40.726-07:00I have become obsessed with reading all of your ma...I have become obsessed with reading all of your math posts and I can't wait to implement so many of the ideas I am learning when I go back to school in September.

The bars can be plotted vertically or horizontally. A vertical bar chart is sometimes called a column bar chart.bar graphshttp://maths.edurite.com/bar-graph-s38oi.htmlnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3633682260880990043.post-51360101482162746532012-07-19T19:22:27.115-07:002012-07-19T19:22:27.115-07:00Great ideas!

This was my first year of teaching, and I got so frustrated with my students' lack of retention. I have no doubt that this deliberate spiraling of curriculum will pay off ten-fold.Laurelhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/14019549455300496459noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-3633682260880990043.post-81467733660963408002012-07-19T10:09:33.599-07:002012-07-19T10:09:33.599-07:00We do calendar math as well.

I'm not sure how similar it is to yours but some of the things we did last year were:<br />-money - the students wrote the number of days we had been in school as dollars and cents and then we had little magnetic coins and dollars so they put the correct amount under their written amount. (ex. 86 days = $ .86 or 130 days = $1.30).<br />-rounding - the students rounded to the nearest ten or hundred (teacher's choice) based on the number of days we had been in school.<br />-number line - students had to write the day of school we had been in and there were special instructions for every fifth or tenth day (draw an orange circle around multiples of five or a blue square around multiples of ten). Even numbers had a line drawn under them. Odd numbers had a line over them. We put it on typewriter tape and it stretched around the room.<br /><br />I love your idea with the graphing! I'm definitely going to use it this year!Anonymoushttps://www.blogger.com/profile/09704165323260283463noreply@blogger.com
