The first instance of Solving problems with picture graphs 2 is under the 3rd grade (U.S.) Math Mission. This exercise plays with picture graphs and uses them to answer problems.
Types of Problems
There are two types of problems in this exercise:
- Select the answers: This problem has the user use a picture graph to select all correct answers to a question from a list of possibilities.
- Fill in the blank: This problems has users use a picture graph to arrive at a numerical answer that is put into an answer box.
Strategies
This exercise is easy to get accuracy badges because the pictures are clear and easy to interpret. Speed badges might be considered medium difficulty because users need to be careful about counting and multiplying by the scale in the picture graph.
- Count the difference in picture when needed, and then multiply by scale. Try not to find actual number by multiplying until the last step. This will also help to strengthen understanding of difference as subtraction.
Real-life Applications
- Measurement is important for taking proper medicine. If one has an illness (whether serious or minor) they need to take their medicine and take it in the proper amount. If they take too little or too much then they are not going to get the proper benefit from it.
