## What's in a Name?

Students explore sets of names and create bar graphs, pictographs, glyphs, and circle graphs. They also find the range, compute measures of center, and create box and whisker plots.

**Math
Content**

Students will:

- Create circle graphs, pictographs, and bar graphs.
- Find the range of a set of data.
- Find the measures of center.
- Create box and whiskers plots.
- Compare related sets of data.
- Compare different representations of the same data.

### First Names First

3-5

Students create bar graphs and find the range and mode of a set of data. They explore the relationship of vowels to consonants in their names. ### Last Names Next

3-5

Students create bar graphs and circle graphs and find the range and mode of two data sets. ### Creating Pictographs

3-5

Students create pictographs and answer questions about the data set. ### Comparing Averages

3-5

Students create a box and whisker plot and compare the mean, median, and mode of a set of data. ### Describing Data

3-5

Students create glyphs based on the characteristics of their names. They also enter data into a spreadsheet and sort it in several ways.
