Line graphs and tables

  • Year group: Year 5
  • Term: Autumn
  • Topic: Statistics
  • Duration: 2 weeks
  • Keystage: KS2
  • Age Range: 9 to 10 yrs
  • Unit can be taught out of sequence: Y
  • Week Range: 6 - 7

In this chapter, pupils read and interpret data in tables and solve problems using information from line graphs.

Pupils extend their introduction to line graphs by using them to solve comparison, sum and difference problems. They make connections between their previous work on co-ordinates and scales with that on time graphs.

As they are introduced to a wider variety of representations, pupils are able to choose the most appropriate graph or chart for a given set of data, as well as give reasons for their choice.

Additionally, they work with a wider range of tables and charts, including timetables. They may, for example, plan a journey using a bus or a train, or look at the high tide times at the seaside. This naturally links to previous work on time.

Line graphs and tables

Developing pupils’ problem solving skills is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This worksheet focuses on line graphs and tables and can be used in two ways. 1. To support parents with their child(ren)’s learning at home, helping them to develop their mathematical understanding beyond the classroom environment. 2. For teachers to use this resource as a basis for a classroom activity, helping pupils to practise and consolidate their understanding.

• Each task is accompanied by guidance to support parents with concepts and methods they may be less familiar with
• For the classroom, you can introduce this as an independent task or in mixed attainment pairs to encourage mathematical discussion

Line graphs and tables

Enabling pupils to develop their mathematical reasoning skills through independent work is a key element of the Mathematics Mastery programme.

This activity explores the concept of line graphs and tables

• Pupils should complete these tasks using concrete manipulatives as part of the CPA approach
• Pupils should be encouraged to explain their working in full sentences
• These tasks may be adapted with pupils working in pairs to encourage mathematical discussion

Theme Park, Maths Enterprise

This is a group of resources I made (I used some ideas from other places, but I made the things myself) in order to use as many Maths related exercises with the final aim of creating their own theme park. Some of the skills covered are:
Shapes, co-ordinates, symmetry, speed, line graphs, pictograms, bar graphs, perimeter, area, percentages, tally, problem solving, survey, money, budget and time.

Enjoy!!

Line graphs

Powerpoint on line graphs, practise plotting one with data. Worksheets with data and blank graphs for chdn (LA/HA) to plot the data. Hope this helps!

Line Graphs Activity

Differentiated 3 ways and easy to edit. Good for introducing line graphs, used with Y6 pupils being introduced and was very effective. Update Jan 2013 - MA task is no longer frequency. HA task made more challenging.
