The Birthday Party - Data Graphing in the Real World

The Birthday Party - Data Graphing in the Real World

In my classroom, I like to use real world scenarios to enforce the importance of learning and truly understanding math skills. Too often students say "Why do I need to know this?". This worksheet is about planning a birthday party for your classmates. Using the data in the world problem, students will collect, organize and analyze the information to solve the problem. This worksheets applies to these standards: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.1 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.2 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.A.3 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.4 CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.SP.B.5. Even though it applies to 6th grade standards, I use these types of word problems for 4th grade and up.

FS Maths  Level 1/2 - Data Handling - The Shop

FS Maths Level 1/2 - Data Handling - The Shop

Although this is covering section 3 of the City and Guilds functional skills exam, the students will also need to calculate wages from a range of values: hourly, weekly as well as annual in order to calculate a monthly wage bill. In addition they are asked to analyse a table to create a brief report, I suggest to develop some answers to the bullet points but alternatives would be possible. Finally they would need to create a suitable chart using graph paper - not supplied with this document.
