Unit of InstructionRepresent 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.
