In a previous lesson, students interpreted and answered questions about scaled picture graphs. In this lesson, they gather and organize data about ways that students would like to travel and represent the data in a scaled picture graph with a scale of 2. Students make sense of how to represent a single student on a scaled picture graph that has a scale of 2.
Explain to students that norms are expectations that help everyone in the room feel safe, comfortable, and productive doing math together. Tell students that some of these norms may apply to both you and me, however there may be things you need me to do to support you in doing math each day. Offer an example, such as “It may help us share our ideas as a whole class if we have the norm ‘Listen as others share their ideas.’” Tell students you will pause at two different points of the lesson to identify norms that help everyone do math.
