# Line plots review

CCSS Math: 3.MD.B.4

Review the basics of lines plots and then practice creating and reading line plots.

## What are line plots?

A

**line plot**is a way to display data along a number line.*Line plots are also called dot plots.*Below is an example of a line plot showing the distance $17$ turtles traveled in an hour (we know it is $17$ turtles because there are $17$ dots on the line plot).

The $3$ dots above $21$ mean that $3$ turtles traveled a distance of $21$ meters in an hour.

## Graphing data on line plots

To graph data on a line plot, we put a dot (or an X) above each number in the data set. If a number appears twice in the data, we put two dots above that number.

For example, a graph of the data set $4,5,5, 6$ would look like this:
