## Math in Focus Grade 3 Chapter 13 Answer Key Bar Graphs and Plots

**Math Journal**

A survey was carried out to find the scores of students on a 20-minute math quiz.

Number of Questions Right

Work in groups to make a line plot. Use the data in the table. Follow the steps to help you.

Step 1: Give the line plot a title. Draw and label the horizontal number line.

Step 2: Draw an ✗ for each student above one number.

Step 3: Check that the number of ✗s shows the data in the table.

Answer:

**Answer each question. Use the data in the line plot.**

Question 1.

How did you get the least and greatest number on the number line?

Answer:

The least number is 1 and the greatest number is 4.

Question 2.

A survey asks 1 00 people how many children are in their families. All the people answer 0, 1, 2, 3, or 4. Would a line plot be a good way to show this data? Explain your thinking.

Answer:

The table shows the number of model trains that 8 children have. Choose which line plot matches the data.

**Fill in the blank. Use the data in the table.**

Question 3.

Line plot __________ matches the given data.

Answer:

Line plot **C** matches the given data.

**Explain the mistakes in the other line plots.**

Question 4.

Answer:

The mistake made in line plot A is we have to draw 2 ✗s to represent 2 children at number 4 in horizontal line. Where horizontal line represents number of model trains. But in line plot A we can observe only one ✗at number 4.

Question 5.

Answer:

The mistake made in line plot B is we have to draw 3 ✗s to represent 3 children at number 2 in horizontal line. Where horizontal line represents number of model trains. But in line plot B we can observe four ✗s at number 2.

Question 6.

Answer:

The mistake made in line plot D is we have to draw ✗ to represent 1 children at number 3 and draw ✗ to represent 1 children at number 5 in horizontal line. Where horizontal line represents number of model trains. But in line plot D we can observe ✗at number 7, ✗ at number 8 instead of number 3 and number 5.

Pinocchio’s nose grew 2 centimeters longer every time he told a lie. He wanted to stop telling lies and be an honest boy. He drew a picture graph and a bar graph to check how many fewer lies he was telling every day.

The picture graph below and the bar graph on page 88 show the length his nose grew over five days.

Question 1.

Answer:

Explanation:

Pinocchio’s nose grew 2 centimeters longer every time he told a lie. He wanted to stop telling lies and be an honest boy. He drew a picture graph to check how many fewer lies he was telling every day.

On Monday his nose grow 36 cm.

Tuesday:

**12 x 2 cm = 24 cm**

On Tuesday his nose grow 24 cm.

Wednesday:

**12 x 2 cm = 24 cm**

On Wednesday his nose grow 24 cm.

Thursday:

**9 x 2 cm = 18 cm**

On Thursday his nose grow18 cm.

Friday:

**7 x 2 cm = 14 cm**

On Friday his nose grow 14 cm.

Complete the bar graph for Friday.

Question 2.

Answer:

**Answer each question. Use the data in the bar graph.**

Question 3.
