Week beginning 30th March 2020
Numeracy - this week we are going to be continuing to do lots of maths challenges relating to data and statistics - there will be bar graphs, line graphs, tally sheets and some pictograms! Please say 'hello' and let me know how you are getting on!
We are starting on Monday with a return to bar charts. You will be familiar with the starter on the PowerPoint. See if you can do all the questions in under 5 mins. After this read the PowerPoint and see if you can identify all the mistakes on the first graph. Then do your own version in your books. Remember it is all about drawing the bar chart accurately.
After reading the PowerPoint, complete the activity - a word count survey and draw a bar chart to present your findings.
Today we are going to be continuing with our data challenges. The focus will be Carroll diagrams, although in this activity they are referred to as 2 way tables. They are the same thing. See if you can use your knowledge to first extract data from them ,then complete the remaining diagrams. You even have a chance to complete another pie chart!
I know some of you have been finding drawing a pie chart difficult. This tutorial shows how to draw pie charts by hand on paper using a protractor. In this video you'll learn the steps to constructing pie charts by hand.
Well done to those of you who had a go at the SATs reasoning tests. I thought maybe we could just have a bit of fun today so here are a couple of games you could play with family members to keep your maths skills up!
