What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

United States – Common Core State Standards

• 2.MD – Measurement & Data
• Mathematics

• 2.MD.9 – Generate measurement data by measuring lengths of several objects to the nearest whole unit, or by making repeated measurements of the same object. Show the measurements by making a line plot, where the horizontal scale is marked off in whole-number units.

• 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.

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

• 6.S.1.a – Gather or access multivariate category and whole-number data

• 6.S.1.b – Sort data into categories or intervals, display it in different ways, and identify patterns

• 6.S.1.c – Interpret results in context, accepting that samples vary
