I used this after an activity where we measured heights and arm lengths. This data can be entered into the spreadsheet, a scatter graph created and the line of best fit shown.
Could be adapted for other variables.
A topical question. Pupils have a set of data on landfill vs recycled rubbish with which to draw a scatter graph. Pupils have to plot the points as well as draw a line of best fit, estimate from their line and analyse the outliers. A simple smartboard to go with it, and answers provided.
Pupils need to decide on their 'dream' job, find the average starting salary, work out their gross pay (roughly) and create a monthly budget. Can also then use their savings to decorate their new flat, keeping within a budget.
Generates great discussion.
8 different graphs and charts, with 3 questions on each.
The first question requires children to read the data on a marked division.
The second question requires children to read the data between the marked divisions.
The 3rd question requires children to answer either a sum, difference or comparison question.
I used this as a maths trail in KS2 and the children loved it! It also highlighted which types of graphs/charts and questions the children needed more support on, which provided the focus for the next stage of learning.
