By – Patty
Primary Subject – Math

Grade Level – 5

Aims:

  • Students will be able to create a tally chart to count the different colors of conversation hearts.
  • Students will graph a ratio between two colored hearts.

Procedure:

      1) Students will each receive a box of conversation hearts
      2) Using a handout, students will count the number of white, pink, orange, yellow, green and purple hearts.
      3) Instead of graphing each color, students will determine a ratio between two colors. Ex:

There are 12 whites to 8 pinks

      .
      4) Using a chart, students will continue the ratio pattern to create an x-value y-value table.
    5) Using the table, students will graph their ratio with appropriate labels, axis, and title.

Assessment:

    Teacher will check for accuracy in table of values, and appropriate graphing procedures.

Accommodations:

      1) Some students may benefit from large scale graph paper when graphing their ratio.
      2) Student who have difficulty with basic multiplication facts may want to use a calculator to determine their ratio values for the chart.
    3) Handout alterations may also be beneficial to students that cannot attend to a long task with multiple directions.
