United States – Common Core State Standards expand/collapse

  • 1 – Grade 1
    • 1.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 1.MD.4 – Organize, represent, and interpret data with up to three categories; ask and answer questions about the total number of data points, how many in each category, and how many more or less are in one category than in another.

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 2.MD.10 – Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems (See Glossary, Table 1. http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics/glossary/glossary/ ) using information presented in a bar graph.

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.MD – Measurement & Data

        • 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.
