Ok, TQC, I've got a challenge for you, and it's quite urgent.|
I'm an education major, writing a math lesson on tables and graphs to teach to a bunch of second-graders at an at-risk school, so we're looking at them not being exposed to a whole lot either.
I'm trying to rack my brain thinking of real-life examples to show these kids that, hey learning how to make and read tables and charts is an important skill to learn, not just so you can pass the standardized tests and get your diploma later on.
However, thanks to a lovely attic fire and the resulting panic (long story there), my brain is now FRIED. And will be served with toast later for breakfast.
TQC, HELP. I need examples to show these kids. I teach Tuesday, and have to turn my lesson plan, or at least a rough draft of it, TONIGHT!
So give me some examples! Bonus points if you can get a picture as well to show me! Please save the pathetic slacker ed major!
edit by agentrayevyn: go easy on her, she's my roomie. tqc, what kind of real world graphs would second graders be exposed to? are there any graphs or charts you use in your everyday life? links to examples would be great. she's learning, and so are these kids.
