Learning Focus- Introduction to line graphs

Remember:

 Children are introduced to line graphs in the context of time.  Use your knowledge of scales to read a time graph accurately and create your own graphs to represent continuous data.  It is important that you understand that continuous data can be measured (for example time, temperature and height) but as values are changing all the time, the values we read off between actual measurements are only estimates.  Remember: Discrete data is counted (Number of children in a class) Continuous data is measured (Height of children).

1.  Click on the video below. There is not a WRM tutorial available for Introduction to line graphs.                    Please take a look at this video which talks about reading line graphs.

Link: Click on the video above to take you to the tutorial.

2. Work through the 'Introduction to lne graphs' PowerPoint attached below.                                                            Children can practise reading line graphs by working through the examples. Have your workbook ready to work through the examples. You may also have a look at the Bar Chart and Line Graph guidance from Monday's lesson to understand how to read and construct these graphs.

3. Complete the 'Introduction to line graphs' worksheet which can be found in your home learning pack. Answers will be provided shortly via Parent Hub App.

4. Challenge: As a bonus challenge, children can complete the WRM extension.                                                                    The challenge is not in your home learning pack and should be completed in your workbook.
