#### United Kingdom – National Curriculum expand/collapse

• ##### KS2.Ma4 – Handling data
• Knowledge, skills and understanding

• Processing, representing and interpreting data

• KS2.Ma4.2 – Pupils should be taught to:

• KS2.Ma4.2.c – Represent and interpret discrete data using graphs and diagrams, including pictograms, bar charts and line graphs, then interpret a wider range of graphs and diagrams, using ICT where appropriate

#### Australia – Australian Curriculum expand/collapse

• ##### Statistics and Probability
• Data representation and interpretation

• ACMSP096 – Construct suitable data displays, with and without the use of digital technologies, from given or collected data. Include tables, column graphs and picture graphs where one picture can represent many data values

• ##### Statistics and Probability
• Data representation and interpretation

• ACMSP120 – Describe and interpret different data sets in context

#### New Zealand – National Standards expand/collapse

• ##### 5.S – Statistics
• 5.S.1 – Investigate summary and comparison questions by using the statistical enquiry cycle:

• 5.S.1.a – Gather, display, and identify patterns in category and whole-number data

#### United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

• ##### 3.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 3.MD.3 – Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.

• ##### 4.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 4.MD.4 – 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.

• ##### 5.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 5.MD.2 – Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of liquid in identical beakers, find the amount of liquid each beaker would contain if the total amount in all the beakers were redistributed equally.
