Problems With A Scaled Bar Graph Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. The Problems With A Scaled Bar Graph learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 3.MD.B.3 as written in the common core national math standards.

Create picture graphs in which each picture represents more than one object. Draw bar graphs in which the height of a given bar in tick marks must be multiplied by the scale factor to find the number of objects in that category. Draw a scaled picture graph with several categories. Category counts can be recorded in tables.
Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in picture graphs. Data for picture and bar graphs can be gathered in authentic contexts.
