I used this in a recent observation for my top Year 1 numeracy set. For the first part of the lesson I took the children outside and gave them two hoops. They had to decide how to use the hoops to help them sort themselves into children who had pets and children who did not have pets. We then went inside and worked through the PP with the children joining in. The main activity was to then sort a different range of data at the end such as even numbers and numbers less than 20 etc. I hope you find this useful :) Please use the PP(1) as the first has a mistake on it.
I put this together because there really wasn't much out there for this topic. Coveres basic info about the solar system and the race to get to the moon between the russians and americans. I&'ve added some audio clips to the powerpoint to spice it up a bit. Hope it is useful.
Animated PowerPoint plus handout
The animated PowerPoint has plenty of scope for discussion as it is played
Includes questions on:
Identifying the population
Criticising sampling methods
Recommending alternative methods
Selecting a representative sample
The handout has definitions of:
Quantitative - Discrete and continuous
The Worksheet has questions on variables.
Distinguishing continuous or discrete variables
The worksheet is an ideal discussion tool.
I found it very useful for small group discussion of variables.
This Maths pack includes a range of data investigations for different ability groups. This is a great Statistics lesson. Each group of children is given a question to answer. They will think about how they can collect and record their data before presenting it in different ways using bar charts, pictograms, line graphs etc. The questions are included as well as explanations of each activity. I have also included tally chart templates for the lower ability groups.
