How can I count and display data?

A tally is a quick and easy way to record what you are counting.

  • Draw a line like a 1 to mark each number you count.
  • When you get to 5, draw a diagonal line across the first four lines
  • Making groups of 5 like this makes it easier to count your tally later.
