As part of our investigation on our Unit of Inquiry ‘Where We Are in Place and Time’ we will will be undertaking the analysis and interpretation of a wide range of data.
These investigations are aligned to the following mathematics outcomes for data handling:
|Phase 3: transferring meaning into symbols
|• identify, read and interpret range and scale on graphs
• identify the mode in a set of data
|Phase 3: applying with understanding||• design a survey and systematically collect, organise and display data in pictographs and bar graphs
• select appropriate graph forms to display data
• interpret range and scale on graphs
|Phase 4: constructing meaning||• understand that different types of graphs have different purposes
• understand that mode, median, mean and range can summarise a set of data
|Phase 4: transferring meaning into symbols||• collect, display and interpret data in pie charts and line graphs|
Please talk to your child about the relevant data that they can avail of through their personal google drives. This, of course, can be accessed over the holiday and has a great deal of content that aligns to data handling in Mathematics but also to our Unit of Inquiry generally. Ms Ju created a padlet that holds a lot of relevant information. It can be accessed here.
