6th Grade – Leg 2, Task #1

Ready for Leg 2? This time, we are going to tackle the Chart the World! activity.

Part #1 – You must do this first!

  1. Open your Documents Folder
  2. Open your Log Book
  3. Begin your log entry for Leg #2.
    • For Activity, enter Chart the World.
    • Add
    • today’s date
    • for your Start Date.

  4. Save and Quit Pages.

Part #2 – You must do this before you begin the activity!

We are going to use Numbers, a new program, for this challenge.

  1. Open Numbers from your Dock
  2. Choose Blank
  3. Save your file as your name-charts&graphs. (ex: MrsH-charts&graphs)

Part #3 – Working with Numbers

Before you can begin this challenge, you have to understand how Numbers works. Numbers is a spreadsheet program. It uses TABLES to create CHARTS and GRAPHS. I am going to demonstrate this both on the SMARTBoard as well as your screen.

Make sure you pay attention.

You will have to set up your document exactly as I show you.

Part #4 – Start Task #1

If you are reading this, then you have already set up your Numbers document and are ready to go find the information. If you are not all set, ask now!!!!

You now need to go find the distances for each leg. In a second, I am going to demonstrate exactly what I mean.

If you are reading this, then you know exactly what you need to do.
