Q4W6 (4/24 – 4/28)

Teacher Kathleen Manning Math/Science 4 6 Represent and Interpret Data/ Life Science: Plants and Animals
Standard(s) Taught

MATH:      MA.4.DP.1.1       MA.4.DP. 1.2      MA.4.DP.1.3

• Collect and represent numerical data, including fractional values, using tables, stem-and-leaf plots, or line plots.
• Determine the mode, median, or range to interpret numerical data including fractional values, represented with tables, stem-and-leaf plots, or line plots.
• Solve real-world problems involving numerical data.

SCIENCE:    SC.4.L.16.3

• Recognize that animal behaviors may be shaped by heredity and learning.
Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

The student will:

• Find the median, mode, and range of a data set.
• Read and interpret different data displays.
• Represent data in different displays.
• Solve word problems involving data.
• Give examples of how animal behaviors may be shaped by heredity or learning:

• inherited behaviors:  instincts, hibernation, migration, hunting, protecting young, courtship, fighting, etc.
• learned behaviors:  using tools, language, hunting, playing sports, writing, etc.
• Recognize that many animal behaviors are a combination of both heredity and learning (e.g., birds inherit the presence of feathers but must learn how to fly.
