#### Representing Data - Bar, Bar-Line and Pictograms

A short slideshow to show how to use collected data and express it in Bar graphs, Bar-Line graphs and pictograms. Requires prior knowledge or a starter explaining tally charts and frequency tables.<br />
<br />
A class starter involves the creation of a tally chart and frequency table, based on a list of 5 animals (Dog, Cat, Horse, Fish and Bird). Each student gives their favourite from the list in order to populate the tally chart. Encourage students to fill these in whilst students give their answers before it's written on the board. (This data will then be used in examples through the lesson.)<br />
<br />
The initial slide can be removed, as it is there to explain what was covered in the previous lesson (based on the previous lessons I took).<br />
On slide 5, discussion is encouraged to find out why visualising data is important. This then leads to three buttons appearing with the three main topics on them. Using your cursor to click on a button will lead you to that type of graph. Each graph walkthrough is separated into two slides. The first slide is used to explain what the graph is and gives a blank set of axes (or table in the case of pictograms) for you to complete the graph using the data collected during the starter. The second slide then contains a new list of data, which the students need to use to create a graph in their books. Once the students have finished, clicking through the slide will provide you with the graph (one click brings up the first frequency, two brings up the second, and so on).<br />
<br />
Once you have finished the second slide, a blue square button will appear in the top right corner. Clicking this button will take you back to slide 5, so you can then move on to another graph type.<br />
<br />
This layout allows students to choose their own order of learning, which encourages interaction and gets them involved, despite being a choice that makes no difference in the long run.<br />
<br />
A quick assessment slide at the end contains some key words from the lesson. This slide can be used to quiz pupils on each type of graph and its properties.<br />
<br />
The final slide is a homework slide set for a year 7 group. Can be removed or altered to suit a difference piece of homework.<br />
<br />
<br />
It's been brought to my attention that the file name contains "Lesson 4". The previous lessons were based around Mode, Median and Range, and an introduction to Tally and Frequency tables. The resources used for these were provided to me from elsewhere and created by someone else, which is why they've not been uploaded against this account.

#### End of Year Class Bookmarks

These are the personalised bookmarks I created for my class last year. They still have the children's names and personalised messages on so that I could give you a flavour of what I wrote to them.
I simply laminted them and cut them out and the children absolutely loved them. Very cheap at the end of the year too.

#### Synonym Wall Display

These resources add to a synonym wall display. The 'boring&' word (such as &';good') is accompanied by more impressive synonyms (such as splendid, exceptional etc).
I bought a shoe holder with various pockets and stapled the boring word to the outside of the pocket and put the more interesting words inside.
There are pictures of the resource available at:

#### Cash for questions revision activity

There are 4 sets of questions (Number, Algebra, Shape, Data) which are mainly A and A* (with some lower grade questions from topics which students struggle with, e.g. percentages, constructions). PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. Students work in pairs or small groups to answer the questions. When they finish a question they get it marked and if it is correct they are given cash to the value of the question. There are bank notes which you can put your school name and pictures of your teachers on. The team with the most money at the end could be given a prize.
