Not as easy as it first appears. Some real mathematical thinking needed here. Clues are given for pupils to determine labels and scales on bar charts. (Interpreting charts and graphs and bar charts for KS2 and KS3.)
These resources are based on a 'child lead’ Key Stage 2 project called ‘How green is your locality?’ Ceri writes: The Key Stage 2 activity provided has been tried and tested in a Year 6 classroom in a Welsh primary school. The activity takes the format of a ‘child lead’ project to engage children in early statistics and data handling in a meaningful context. The activity contains teacher notes, presentation materials and pupil worksheets. In addition to the lesson material, real data can be downloaded to provide your pupils with results to use and compare.'
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes
RECOMMENDED by the TES panel. Adventure game in which students answer averages questions in order to progress through a haunted house. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 8 questions on mean, median, mode, mean and median from ungrouped and grouped frequency tables. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
Featured in the TES Newsletter. Adventure game in which students answer probability questions in order to rescue a princess. PLEASE REVIEW / COMMENT. There are 5 sections, each with 2 topics. They have 4 attempts at each topic, if they get all 4 wrong, the game ends and they will have to start again. The 5 sections are: OR and AND questions, complementary events, combined events (inc. 'exactly' questions and 'at least' questions), conditional probability. Go to my profile page and check out my other games.
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.
