Analysing and Interpreting Data
This SMILE resource contains two packs of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of analysing and interpreting data, from reading information from a bar chart to interpreting cumulative frequency graph.
Analysing and interpreting data pack one contains ten work cards with a wide variety of activities covering reading data from charts, practical activities to collect data, finding the mode, the median and the mean of a data set, and using statistics to break a code.
Analysing and interpreting pack two contains eight work cards with activities requiring students to use and interpret frequency graphs, analyse a data set, explore what is mean by the term ‘average’, group data, find the modal group, and use cumulative frequency curves.
SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments. Related resources include answers to all of the cards and test books and answers.
