Data Squares Level 3

This unit provides a way of looking at information from a group of individuals. Data squares hold several pieces of information about individuals. Sorting and organising a set of data squares allows things to be found out about the group and questions about the group answered. The data squares allow students to consider issues needing more than one category to be considered at the same time. Proportional thinking will be encouraged and averages will be calculated.

Resource

Giant Mystery

We have the hand print of a Giant…That’s all!! Can we find out how big this giant visitor was? By measuring other people, can we determine the relationship between hand size and body size, to help reconstruct the giant? The unit explores relationships between the hand length, width, span of a person and their height and other body measurements.

Resource

Hanging out for Hangi

In this unit students are faced with the challenge of ordering the right amounts of food to put down in a hangi for the whole school.  They will need to carry out a statistical investigation, to survey the school population about preferred choices of food, to decide how they are best to collect the data and then to record their results so that the hangi can go ahead.

Resource

Sports

This week we collect data about sporting activities and present the data using stem-and-leaf graphs and bar charts.

Resource

Fridge Pickers

This week we collect data using our fridge as the context. We present the data as dot plots, strip graphs and pie charts.

Resource

Paper Planes

In this unit, students investigate one variable to see if they can make a paper plane fly further. They use scatter plots to establish a possible relationship between variables then use what they have found to make a paper plane to enter into a class competition. Who will win the class challenge? Some key vocabulary will need introduction and discussion.

Resource

Carrots

In this unit we begin by investigating the amount of water contained in a carrot. We plot the "weight" of the carrot using a line-graph as the water in the carrot evaporates. The students also pose their own carrot questions for investigation.

Resource

Planning a Statistics Investigation L3
