  • Ask, “What is your favorite kind of pizza?” Have students raise their hands to share. Write answers on the board. When multiple people answer with the same kind, write a tally mark next to the kind of pizza.
  • After several students have answered, say, “There’s an easier way to collect information, or what mathematicians call data, about this question. Let’s raise our hands when we hear our favorite kind of pizza.”
  • Have students raise their hands as you say the following kinds of pizza: cheese, pepperoni, veggie, and “other.”
  • Ask students which was the most popular kind of pizza and to explain how they know.
