Bar Graphs Exploration Demo Video


Description:  Students will examine pre-built bar graphs on BlocksCAD and interpret the data presented. They will expand and edit code and adjust existing variables to create their own graphs. Students will create new variables for the height of each bar and incorporate them into their code so that their entire bar graph is quickly customizable.


CC 3.MD.B.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.

CSTA 1B-AP-09: Create programs that use variables to store and modify data
