Math CentralQuandaries & Queries


Question from Angie, a parent:

I am confused! I have to include a title, labels, and a key: Here is the problem

Snickers 45
Kit Kats 65
Nerds 30
Kisses 50
Suckers 75

With the above information please help me make a candy pictograph

I would gladly like your help as my child is a second grader and can not tell me anything about a pictograph

Hi Angie,

I'll tell you what I think is wanted, but I am not exactly sure it is what the teacher wants. A pictograph is a picture or diagram that represents an idea. Here you want a diagram that represents 45 Snickers, 65 Kit Kats, and so on. Here is the beginning of my pictograph.


I hope this helps,
