Unit 3, Lesson 12# Ask and answer varied word problem types about a data set with three categories.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students interpret information presented in graphs by exploring "compare with difference unknown" problems. They begin with visualizing these problems in their easily accessible "equalizing" contexts by answering questions such as, "How many more students would Category A need in order to have the same amount as Category B?" Students use their understanding of comparing lengths from earlier lessons to compare the responses in three categories.
