Collecting & Graphing Data

The 5th Grade students in Mrs. Stoner’s math class were beginning a unit on graphing.  Springfield Park is a pilot school for ActivEngage, so we were able to utilize this program.  ActivEngage will be available at all elementary schools soon!  In order to collect data, we asked the students when their birthday is and had them answer using the text response in Engage.  After all students responded through Engage, we were able to show the entire classes responses on the screen.  The students transferred this information to a graph using Keynote.  We discussed how to use enter the data in the cells, and then use the inspector to create and label our graph.  We focused on how all graphs need a title & x-axis and y-axis values and labels.  What a quick and easy way to collect data!
