# 3rd Grade Data Analysis & Probability Skills Prior Standards Implementation

### Data Analysis and Probability

Interpret pictographs.
3.5.1
DP
1. Play Ball - collect data to put on a picture graph
2. Reading Venn Diagrams - use Venn diagrams to answer questions
3. Step-by-step Internet4Classrooms module on how to create a pictograph
4. Use Graphs to Answer Questions - This Saxon math site uses pictographs or tally marks in the form of check marks. Graphs are sometimes repeated with new questions. Be careful!
5. Use Pictographs to answer questions - interactive lesson
Interpret bar graphs.
3.5.2
DP
1. All The Parts - learn the parts of a graph
2. Grapher - interactive column graph maker, students can change values and labels
3. How It All Stacks Up - interpret and compare information using a bar graph
4. Interpreting Column Graphs - students practice by answering ten questions about the graph
5. Kids Have Pets - learn about the parts of a bar graph and how to collect information
6. Kinds Of Graphs - learn about various types of graphs
7. Reading Tables and Schedules - study the table or schedule, and then answer the question
Determine whether an event is certain, possible, or impossible.
3.5.4
DP
1. Chances Are - predict the likelihood of events using a circle graph with percentages as a model
2. Why Can't I Win? - use a spinner to predict the likelihood of simple events occurring
Determine the most likely, least likely, or equally likely outcomes in simple experiments (i.e., spinner, number or color cube).
3.5.5
DP
1. Coin Toss - toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger dataset)
2. Heads I Win - ( 3-5 ) predict the likelihood of tossing heads or tails and graphs the results of coin tosses
3. Lions and Tigers - predict the likelihood of a simple event (rolling a die) as a fraction
4. Pin The Tail - use probability to predict and conduct experiments to test predictions
5. Why Can't I Win? - use a spinner to predict the likelihood of simple events occurring
6. What Are My Chances - explore probability and ratios
Select all possible outcomes of a simple experiment (i.e., spinner, coin toss, number or color cube).
3.5.6
DP
1. Coin Toss - toss enough coins to make a prediction about probability (maximum number of tosses 1000, but you can keep tossing to get a larger dataset)
Virtual Manipulatives
1. Data Analysis & Probability (Grades 3-5)
2. Virtual Dice - four styles available; single, double, triple, or +/- dice

Released Tests & Others
1. Solve It! - Math Videos provide problem solving practice for students in grades 3 to 6. Each of the thirteen sets contain five multi step word problems with step by step video solutions. Concepts include basic operations, algebraic reasoning, money, fractions, percent, perimeter, area, proportional reasoning, and measurement.
2. Third Grade Math - Read each question and choose the best answer. Then mark the circle next to the letter for the answer you have chosen. ( from Texas )
3. Texas end-of-year Math test 2004
