# Cluster 2: Represent and interpret data. (Supporting Cluster)Archived

Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

## Lesson Plans

Going Green - Renewable and Non-Renewable Florida Resources:

Students will use their knowledge of renewable and non-renewable resources to create a green community in Florida. The students will be given a map of a plot of land in Florida on which to develop a green community. They will need to use renewable resources while protecting the non-renewable resources on the plot of land.

Type: Lesson Plan

One Leg Up:

In this lesson the students will be using a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). They will be measuring different lengths of insects, recording the lengths, and then plotting the data on a line plot. From this data they will solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions.

Type: Lesson Plan

Marshmallow Math:

In this lesson, students are physically engaged in measuring distances of tossed marshmallows to the nearest 1/2 foot. Using their measurements, they will represent the data on a line plot and then solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of mixed numbers. This is a fun lesson that motivates students to become excited about the difficult world of fractions.
