Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of
a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Solve problems involving addition and subtraction
of fractions by using information presented in line plots. For example,
from a line plot find and interpret the difference in length between the
longest and shortest specimens in an insect collection.
Subject Area: Mathematics
Domain-Subdomain: Measurement and Data
Cluster: Level 2: Basic Application of Skills & Concepts
Cluster: Represent and interpret data. (Supporting Cluster)
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.
