4th Grade Data & Statistics
Data & Statistics
In fourth grade math, data & statistics involves many concepts. One of the main goals at this level is for students to become proficient at displaying and interpreting data. In order to do this, students will need to be familiar with things like frequency tables, bar graphs, line graphs, and stem-and-leaf plots. Some of these have been introduced in previous grades, while others will be new concepts. Frequency tables help students collect information and interpret that information. They’ll be asked to draw conclusions based on the data in the table. That data can then be used to create bar graphs, line graphs, or stem-and-leaf plots. Students will also need to be able to use a completed graph to draw conclusions. In addition, students will work with mean, median, mode, and range. They’ll need to be able to identify or calculate them from a set of data or a graph.
While probability in fourth grade data & statistics will be more advanced, students will continue to use familiar fourth grade math vocabulary, such as certain and likely. They’ll be asked to determine the certainty and likelihood and the probability of an event. They’ll also need to determine possible combinations of an event. Probability will also include fractions at this level.
