What's in Your Bowl?
This Cre8ate maths activity motivates the use of averages, ranges, percentages, bar charts, pie charts, and tables to make comparisons, interpretations and conclusions. The students can perform the "What is in your bowl?" activities to investigate serving amounts and what is eaten for breakfast. The data collection activities cover estimation and measurement and enable many investigations to be performed: Do boys eat more cereal than girls? What is a typical serving amount? Does bowl diameter affect serving amount? What do pupils eat for breakfast? How healthy are breakfast cereals?
