Maths

This week, we will continue learning about statistics and how to organise data. We will be looking at interpreting different data and also what we could do if we were working with larger numbers. Have a great week!

Monday

  • Today, we will be interpreting data. What does the word interpret mean? It means that we are going to understand the data and pull some information from it! I'm sure you will be excellent at this because you did some great Maths work last week. 
  • Click on the image below to take the quiz. See if you can interpret the tally charts!

 

 

  • I have now provided two different data representations for you below. One is a tally chart and the other is a pictogram. See what you can remember last week. I have provided you with some questions for each so that you can analyse the data. Record your answers on a piece of paper. Good luck!

 

Activity 1

Questions

  • What is this tally chart showing us? Could you give it a title?
  • How many people chose red as their favourite colour?
  • What was the most popular colour?
  • What was the least popular colour?
  • How many more people liked blue than red?
  • How many less people liked green than purple?
  • How many people chose purple as their favourite colour?
  • Can you think of any other questions for your friends to answer about this tally chart?

 

Activity 2

 

Questions

 

  • What is the pictogram showing us?
  • How many different types of pets are in the data?
  • How many people have dogs?
  • What is the least common pet?
  • How many pets are there altogether? How did you find that out?
  • How many more cats are there than hamsters?
  • How many fewer fish than dogs are there?

 

Extra Activities to Try

Tuesday

  • Today, we will be going back to pictograms. But now we will be finding out how to draw a pictogram for bigger numbers. Do you remember last week, each icon had the value of 1. If you spot the key to the side, it shows you that each piece of fruit represents 1. Look at the image below and I will explain the next step.

 

  = 1

 

Here, each piece of fruit represents 1. So there are 7 pears, 1 watermelon, 1 orange, 1 apple and 1 banana.

 

  • However, this can be changed if I was taking data from a larger selection. For example, I did a study across the whole school to find out which was the most popular piece of fruit. My results were:
  • 35 pear, 20 orange, 15 banana, 5 apples, 50 watermelon
  • These numbers are huge and it would take me a really long time to draw out 50 watermelons!
  • So, we can change the 'scale' of each icon. Instead of each icon having the value of 1, it could have the value of 2, 5 or 10.
  • So my pictogram would look like the following

 

  = 5

 

  • If you notice, my key has changed and my fruit now represents the 5. So, each icon that you see represents 5! 
  • You could change the key to whichever number is most suitable. It could be 1, 2, 5 or 10 so keep your eyes peeled!
  • Have a go at as many activities on the document below as possible. 
  • There is a challenge sheet below it.

Wednesday

  • We will be building on what we learnt yesterday - pictograms. Remember that we found out that the key can represent different numbers. 
  • Today, we will continue with this but interpret pictograms - it is so important today to look at the key so that you can see what the scale is.
  • Complete the missing gaps below. Record your answers on a piece of paper or discuss them with someone at home.

 

 

 

 

  • Have a go at the challenges below if you feel up to it! (Click to enlarge them)

Thursday

  • Today is our final day of statistics and hasn't it been fun?! Our last thing to learn about is block diagrams. These are very similar to what we have done with pictograms except they are just in a 'block'. 
  • Below is what a block diagram looks like and some useful facts!

 

 

  • Go through the PowerPoint below to gain a little more information.
  • Now it's time to complete your activity. I have attached a number of different themed block diagrams for you to complete. 
  • Have a go at as many as you like.
  • If you do not have a printer then perhaps you could draw one of your own.
  • Have a great day of Maths smiley

Friday

  • It's the last day of the week and of the HALF TERM! Well done for completing your sixth week of home learning
  • Today, I have attached the usual arithmetic practice
  • Complete as much of it as you can using the methods that we practice in school
  • I have then attached a paper based on all of the statistics we have learnt over the past 2 weeks. Try to complete this too so that you can impress yourself with all of your new knowledge!
  • Well done on 6 weeks of fantastic Maths work and enjoy a well deserved rest.
