Transcript of Lesson: M&M dot plot

1. Gaining Attention:
Students will be reminded of time spent collecting data in the past. The teacher will ask questions about readability of the data to highlight the struggle of gaining information from unorganized data. Students will be told the objective is going to be to organize data in a dot plot so it is easy to read and information can be found quickly.

Once the M&Ms are brought out, students will definitely be intrigued. This will be a good motivation for students to stay engaged. The teacher will talk about how not all M&M packs are the same. Each has different amounts of each color. The teacher will present the idea of figuring out how we investigate different packages with different colors inside.
Work Experience
Teacher will walk around the room asking students about how they are organizing their data and constructing their graph. Corrections or flipping misconceptions can be done at this time.
Students will turn in dot plots for a grade so teacher can gain information of improvement and students' knowledge of dot plots.

2. Informing learners of the objectives:
Students have already learned how to collect and record data. Teacher will ask students how they might record data and get responses from students. They will also discuss the importance or purpose of collecting data.
Teacher will open a pack of M&Ms and first ask the class how she should organize them first. Then, the teacher will model how to construct a blank dot plot. She will then model how to add the M&Ms to the dot pot. She will ask for students to help her complete.
After releasing students to work in partners, the teacher will walk around the room and assist as needed. There will be special attention give to students who she knows will need extra support.
