These Cre8ate maths activities require the use of averages, ranges, percentages, histograms, stem and leaf displays, pie charts, and tables to make comparisons, interpretations, and conclusions. They also provide real data about pupils for analysis. Performing the “How far can you …?” events in the classroom will engage pupils, enable data collection and motivate data investigations. Cotton wool shot put and triple jump from a standing start are the focus of the class activities together with measuring foot length and pupil height. Further possible investigations include: Girls shot put further than boys? Boys triple jump further than girls? Which hand is best for shot put? What percentage of the triple jump distance is the hop? Which is the most loved Olympic sport at school? Which Olympic sport do pupils want to do more of?

Hi,
When I try to use the excel spreadsheet I get the "File Not Found" alert and then the enter data button goes. I have just downloaded it so not altered any files. Can you help?

If you save the associated database that should pull in the relative data. Please let us know if that doesn't resolve the issue
