In __yesterday's post__ we reviewed spent some time looking at perimeter and intervals of time. Today we finish the entire 12-day review with a look at Reporting Category 4 - Data Analysis and Personal Financial Literacy.

**Frequency Tables and Dot Plots**

Line plots are introduced to students for the first time in 3rd grade. They are a handy way of of examining the distribution of data, an important skill that is built upon in upper elementary. Here's a video showing how to make them.

With that explanation, why not try out this practice problem?

**Pictographs and Bar Graphs**

Bar graphs are first examined in 1st grade. Now in 3rd grade, however, students really start to look at scaled intervals. Here's a video explaining what that means.

Now you can try your luck with this STAAR released test question.

**Solving Data Problems**

More than just creating and interpreting different graphs, students are expected to solve one- and two-step problems invovling various graphs. Watch the video below for an explanation.

Here's a practice problem that you can use to test your skill.

This was a griddable response item on the test, so you don't have any multiple choice responses to choose from.

**Correct A****nswers**
Here's a video that shows the correct answers and includes detailed explanations. Make sure you've worked the problems out yourself before watching!
