MA.3.DP.1.1

Collect and represent numerical and categorical data with whole-number values using tables, scaled pictographs, scaled bar graphs or line plots. Use appropriate titles, labels and units.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Within this benchmark, the expectation is to complete a representation or construct a representation from a data set.

 Clarification 2: Instruction includes the connection between multiplication and the number of data points represented by a bar in scaled bar graph or a scaled column in a pictograph.

Clarification 3: Data displays are represented both horizontally and vertically.
