Reading Pictographs
Pictograph: Any information represented through pictures is
called pictograph.
Collection and Recording of Data: There are different ways
of collecting and recording of information (data). We shall take up two
examples of collection of data.
Richel went to a toy shop. She counted different kinds of toys
sold in a day and noted them as follows:
Motor Bike

Dolls

Duck

Cars

6

The information representation represented in the form of a table given above is called Recording or tabulating of data.
The recorded data can be represented through pictures as
under:
Toys sold in a day
Let us take another example.
A child visited a garden. The garden has only fruit plants
(trees). He found that there are 6 manngo trees, 5 banana trees, 4 rose trees,
6 coconut trees 8 grapes trees. The child collected this information with him
and come back home. The child recorded this information in the form of a table
as shown below:
Mango trees

Banana trees

Rose trees

Coconut trees

Grapes trees

8

The recorded data can be represented through pictures as
shown below:
This form of representation of information facilities
answering of different types of equations related to the data for example:
(i) Name the tree which is greatest in number in the garden.
In the garden, grapes trees are greatest in number, i.e., 8
(ii) Which tree is least in number in the garden?
Rose trees are least in number, i.e., 4
(iii) How many trees are there in the garden?
There are 6 + 5 + 4 + 6 + 8 = 29 trees in the garden.
1. The number of pair of shoes sold by a shop in a week is given below. Represent the given information as pictograph using an appropriate scale.

We have learnt, that a collection of objects can be stored out based on their color, shape, size or any other common thing among them. We can organise all the information in a table to understand how many of each item is there in a collection. Information collected is called
Some sample examples of pictographs or pictorial representation are shown, how the objects are used to give information regarding mathematical data. Read the pictograph and gather the information
We will discuss here how to use Tally marks. To count the number of times a value of the variable appears in a collection of data, we use tally mark ( / ). Thus tally mark represents frequency. Observe the tally marks and the corresponding frequencies:
In math practice worksheet on data handling we will solve numerous types of questions on handling data, frequency distribution and on grouping data. Questions on frequency distribution
In worksheet on pictographs, all grade students can practice the questions on data handling. We can present the given information in many ways. In pictograph the information is presented by using a picture as symbol. A pictograph has a title and a key.
We learn how to represent the data on the bar graph. Data can be represented by bars (like rectangle) whose lengths represent numerical values. One can use horizontal or vertical bars. Instead of rectangles one way even use line segments in such graphs.
In worksheet on bar graph we will practice different questions on representing the bar graph from the following data given in the questions. 1. The number of bedsheets manufactured by a factory during five consecutive weeks is given below.
Now we will discuss about the construction of bar graphs or column graph. In brief let us recall about, what is bar graph? Bar graph is the simplest way to represent a data. In consists of rectangular bars of equal width. The space between the two consecutive bars must be
In math worksheet on bar graphs students can practice the questions on how to make and read bar graphs or column graphs. Test your knowledge by practicing this graphing worksheet where we will
We will learn how to represent data on a bar graph. We have seen how pictograph represents a pattern of information through numerical data in general. But such representation takes
In 5th grade data handling worksheet, students can practice the questions on bar graph, line graph and pie chart. We represent the data in many ways. A graph is a pictorial representation of information. In pictograph the information is presented by using a picture as symbol
The pie chart is a pictorial representation of data relative to a whole. Each portion in the circle represent an element of the collected data. The pie chart represents the composition of various elements in a whole. The total value of the pie chart is always 100%.
Bar graphs are used to compare changes between different groups. Line graphs are used to compare two variables. The data which changes over a period of time can be displayed through a line graph. In line graph: ● Points are plotted on the graph related to two variables
