Represent and interpret data.
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.
Line plots are a way to display a set of data so we can organize and interpret the data. Fractions are used to express measurements that fall between whole numbers.
