Week 5 - Data Handling (03.02.21)

Week 5 – Statistics and Data Handling Instructions

Statistics or Data Handling is the area of maths that involves gathering, recording and presenting data in a clear and helpful way.

Data is the word we use in maths to mean the information that we gather.

Data can be presented in different ways e.g. tally chart, table, pictogram, bar chart, line graph, pie chart, timetable and many more.

 

Lesson 1 – Interpreting information in a table

In our first lesson today, you are going to be using the information in a table to answer questions. First, open the ‘teaching powerpoint’ to see how to do this.

Then, have a go at one of these 2 activities (or both if you’d really like to!):

1. A worksheet with 3 different levels of challenge to answer questions about the information in the table. Like usual, choose which level of challenge you want to complete. We have also uploaded answers for you to check your work.

2. A Kahoot quiz which you can complete by following the link below. Like we do in class, please set your ‘nickname’ to your first name. You only need one device to complete the Kahoot quiz, however you will also need to see the table of information about the planets. If you have a printer, you might like to print the table off, or alternatively, have the table open in a different tab so you can flick between the table and the Kahoot quiz. Some of the questions you may need to do some working out for, so have a pencil and paper at the ready.

Lesson 2 – Interpreting information in a Timetable

Today, we are going to have a go at using a timetable to help us answer questions. Watch the video linked below to help you understand how timetables work, and then have a go at the worksheet. Choose your level of challenge and make sure you mark your work with the answers uploaded.

Lesson 3 – Interpreting information in a Timetable

If you need to recap, watch yesterday’s video again to refresh your memory on how we can interpret the information in a timetable. Then, have a go at one of the 2 tasks:

1. Chilli Challenge- Like in a normal chilli challenge, select your level but don’t forget you can move up or down the levels depending on how challenging you are finding it. You don’t have to complete all of the questions on one level, skip further down to the end of a challenge if you’re finding the beginning questions too easy.

Level 1 – More fluency practise on answering questions on a timetable

Level 2 – Some trickier questions where you need to explain your answers

Level 3 – Use the information to complete the partially-filled-in timetable

Level 4 – Use the information to complete the blank timetable

2.  A Kahoot quiz which you can complete by following the link below.  Like we do in class, please set your ‘nickname’ to your first name. You only need one device to complete the Kahoot quiz. Some of the questions you may need to do some workout out for, so have a pencil and paper at the ready.

Lesson 4 – Interpreting Information in a line graph

Follow this link and have a go at the lesson on the BBC Bitesize website on reading and answering some questions on a line graph. Watch both of the video tutorials on what a line graph is and how we can answer questions using a line graph. Then, complete one or both of the worksheets at the bottom of the page. Use the answers to mark your work and check your understanding.

Lesson 5 – Interpreting Information in a line graph

We have uploaded some worksheets to help you practise answering questions about line graphs. Using what you learnt yesterday, have a go at one or a couple of the worksheet below to see how much you’ve understood about line graphs. As always, select your level of challenge and mark your answers. Remember, you don’t have to complete all the worksheets, choose which questions you feel confident to have a go at.
