MA.5.DP.1.1

Collect and represent numerical data, including fractional and decimal values, using tables, line graphs or line plots.

Examples

Gloria is keeping track of her money every week. She starts with $10.00, after one week she has $7.50, after two weeks she has $12.00 and after three weeks she has $6.25. Represent the amount of money she has using a line graph.

Clarifications

Clarification 1: Within this benchmark, the expectation is for an estimation of fractional and decimal heights on line graphs.

Clarification 2: Decimal values are limited to hundredths. Denominators are limited to 1, 2, 3 and 4. Fractions can be greater than one.
