Tables with Pictograms to Help Interpret Data

Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on LinkedIn

Tables are perfect for organizing all kinds of information and for looking at results with more clarity. Using pictures makes it easier to comprehend tables faster and this is why pictograms help us interpret data more easily.

At Smartick, we start children with pictograms at a young age so that they can learn how to compare numbers. Later on, they’ll return to use pictograms when they confront mathematical problems since visualizing helps them comprehend the problem better and solve it faster.

Tables with Pictograms for Comparison:

Here are 5 different examples with pictograms where students have to respond to the indicated question.

Example 1: Who has the most marbles?

Example 2: Which one is the least?

Tables with Pictograms for Word Problem Comprehension:

Example 1: I am bowling. On my first try, I knocked down 5 bowling pins and on my second try I knocked down 2. How many bowling pins did I knock down on my first try? How many bowling pins did I knockdown in total?

Example 2: In Charles’ ecological garden, there are 9 watermelons and 3 tomatoes. How many more watermelons are there than tomatoes?
