This selection of spreadsheets, designed by the Primary National Strategies to aid teaching and learning, tackles data, graphs, charts, measures and money, in a variety of ways.
Carroll diagram allows either shapes or numbers to be dragged into an either one or two criteria table. The criteria can be selected and the results can be tested. Criteria are about right angles, lengths of sides, symmetry, odd and even numbers, and multiples. Guidance for teachers is included.
Measures counting stick and Converting measures show the conversions between metric units of capacity and mass, the starting number and steps to take along the stick can be selected. It also shows a conversion graph between miles and kilometres.
Converting units of measure shows the conversions between a variety of metric measures of mass, capacity and length. The units are chosen and then an amount is input, the conversion can then be revealed. Included are two problems in context, the second using imperial measures of length. Teacher guidance is included.
Make amounts of money allows the selection of multiples of 2p, 5p, 10p, 20p and 50p and then the total amount of money can be hidden or revealed.

Probability has two parts and includes instructions. Using a cube simulation, click to randomly select one of three colours of cubes, which are then shown in a bar chart. The idea is to use mathematical language to describe what is happening. The second part has a probability scale and probability statements about a dice being rolled, select the appropriate place on the scale for the statement.
