In this paper, the partial results of a study about the representation of statistical graphs in three series of maths textbooks (18 textbooks) of primary education in Perú are presented. Following a methodology of qualitative type and through an analysis of content, we identified the types of statistical graphs represented and the activities that the pupils should do from them. The results shown that the bar graph is the most frequent in all primary grades, followed by line graphs and pictograms; calculating, building and exemplify are the most frequently activities. Also, all the statistical graphs mentioned by curricular guidelines are represented, although some of them are presented before the grades declared.
