Pictographs - Interpret Pictographs
Teacher Notes for Pictographs
Students learn to interpret mathematical relationships shown in pictographs and solve problems using the pictograph data. For each problem, the key showing the one-to-many relationship is provided and students compute actual numbers of objects from the symbols.
- 24; There are 4 fewer symbols after Sam’s name than after Wendy’s name, so Sam has 4×6, or 24 fewer pencils than Wendy.
- 36; There are 4 more symbols after Ralph’s name than after Vince’s name, so Ralph has 4×9, or 36 more markers than Vince.
- 40; There are 5 fewer symbols after Karen’s name than after James’ name, so Karen has 5×8, or 40 fewer pens than James.
<ART: Draw a notebook for each of the symbols shown>
