This week we continue to study statistics in maths. We decide on a simple investigation and then ask questions to find out the information we need.
First we asked the boys – What is your favourite toy?
Pax liked the ActivBoard. Alvaro liked the dinosaurs. Joseph liked the Mobilo.
We asked which toy each boy liked and put a tally mark on our poster.
Afterwards we interpreted the results. What did we find out? Which set was larger/smaller? Which set was most/least? How many people did we survey altogether? It was fun.
Next the girls decided they wanted to know their favourite coloured dress! Miley liked pink dresses. Nirvana liked blue dresses. Vanzin liked rainbow dresses.
Seven girls liked pink dresses. Four girls liked blue dresses. 2 girls liked rainbow dresses.
Can you tell which was the biggest group? The smallest group? How many girls are in the class?
