What Is Your Favorite?

3-5
Students make human bar graphs and circle graphs, then draw them on paper and use a Web site to generate them. Posing and answering questions using the graphs will give the students an opportunity to apply their problem-solving and communication skills. They will also find the mode for a set of data.
