Practise analysing and creating single-unit dot plots with this free maths worksheet.

## What Is a Dot Plot?

A dot plot is a simple and effective way to visually represent data. It is a type of data visualisation that displays individual data points on a number line. Each data point is represented by a dot placed above its corresponding value on the number line.

## Looking For a Worksheet on Dot Plots?

Introducing our comprehensive Dot Plot Mastery Worksheet, a downloadable resource that will elevate your students’ understanding of dot plots to new heights! This double-sided worksheet will give your students ample practise analysing and creating single-unit dot plots.

On the front side of the worksheet, students will encounter three distinct dot plots, each depicting data in an easy-to-understand manner. Through carefully curated questions, students will dive into data analysis, honing their skills in interpreting dot plots.

The back side of the worksheet offers an exciting opportunity for students to put their newfound knowledge into practise. Here, they will be tasked with creating their own dot plots for three different sets of data.

## Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding

For students who need an added challenge, encourage them to collect their own data and create a scaled dot plot where each dot represents more than one.

If students need additional support, encourage them to count each dot and place a number at the top of each column to help remind them of the values for each category.
