Step 2: Teach Lesson
Interpreting data is an important aspect of mathematics. Students should find ways to read charts and graphs. Glyphs are a fun
way to figure out information about a person. They help to interpret and describe data of many types.
How would you like to create a picture about you and see if I can figure out information about you?
First, let’s see if you can determine information about me.
Show a completed teacher glyph (see below). Have the students use the Glyph Interpretation Sheet to explain what they learned
The student will create their own glyphs and have someone interpret it.
Provide chart for the student to read and make their own glyphs.
Pass out materials for the student to make their own glyphs.
When they are finished, have someone interpret and compare glyphs to discover things that are the same and/or different.
