The first instance of Creating picture and bar graphs 2 is under the 3rd grade (U.S.) Math Mission. This exercise practices creating bar charts and picture charts.

Types of Problems

There is essentially one type of problem in this exercise:

  1. Create a graph from the chart of information: This problem provides the student with a chart of information. From the information they are tasked to create either a bar chart of a picture chart based on the information. The picture on this page is a picture chart type problem.

    Create a graph from the chart of information


This exercise is easy to get accuracy badges and speed badges. The problems can be performed quickly and the needed multiples are not high.

  1. There is no option for bar or picture, it is predetermined.
  2. Once students have made one bar in a picture chart situation it is sometimes easier to make new collections of pictures based on the height of the initial bar.
  3. On the picture charts, students will not need a fraction of a picture.
  4. A mouse can help this problem go more quickly, rather than a touchpad (unless students have a stylus).

Real-life Applications

  1. The bar and picture graphs in this exercise can be in real-world situations.
  2. Data and statistics appear in news reports and in the media every day.
  3. Statistics can be seen more frequently than calculus in every day life.
