Presenting Data Graphically

This resource contains four instant maths ideas exploring how to represent data graphically. In the first task students record how long they watch TV, group the results and draw two separate graphs to compare boys and girls. The second task requires students to consider what type of diagram is suitable to represent what kind of data. The third task asks students to draw a pie chart to represent a day in their life which the final task is more challenging, requiring students to draw a pie chart showing the ingredients of a chocolate bar. Student resource sheets explain the different types of correlation, a check list of things to consider when drawing bar charts, vertical line graphs, histograms, pie charts, cumulative frequency graphs and box and whisker graphs. The final resource sheet accompanies the third task and is designed to make pie charts accessible without a knowledge of angles.
