Key Concepts

  • Prepare a line plot to organize the data

Introduction

Measure

We can measure the length of an object. 

Example: 

Measure the length of the object. 

measure ex

Solution: 

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length. 

parallel

So, the length of the brush is 7 centimeters. 

Data 

Measure all the lengths of the object and use a table to record that data. 

Example: 

Measure all the lengths of the object and use a table to record that data. 

data ex

Solution: 

parallel

The lengths of the objects are measured, and the table shows the different lengths of the objects. 

data ex solution

We can show the data in a line plot which is shown in the table. Place a dot over the number that shows each length. 

line

Example: 

Measure the length of the object. 

Measure skateboard

Solution: 

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length. 

So, the length of the object is 4 centimeters. 

Example: 

Measure the length of the object. 

Measure car

Solution: 

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length. 

So, the length of the object is 6 centimeters. 

Example: 

Measure the length of the object. 

Measure key

Solution: 

Place the object on a ruler and measure the actual length. 

So, the length of the object is 6 centimeters.
