Create - Mathematics. We are learning to plan and conduct investigations using the statistical enquiry cycle:
- determining appropriate variables and data collection methods;
- gathering, sorting, and displaying multivariate category, and time series data to detect patterns, variations, relationships and trends;
- comparing distributions visually;
- communicating findings, using appropriate displays.
We will have met the success criteria when we
  • Develop an understanding of how to use a tally chart and a frequency table.
  • Use a spreadsheet to record our tally / frequency data.
  • Correctly develop a graph or chart using a spreadsheet programme. (Google Sheets)
  • Develop a clear statement based on our graphed data and share our learning on our learning blogs.

This pie chart shows the data that Mary’s has collected from 24 pupils in her class. “ If you had to choose between having a cat or a dog as a pet which would it be?” was the question mary asked the students. I think people choose cats over dogs because cats are a small and cute animal and people are more attracted to animals that are small and cute. Also dogs can be small and cute but may grow to a significant size.IMG_4158.JPG

Here are the results of my survey of which animal people preferred. My survey was biased because I did not specify who I was going to survey. I also surveyed ten students in my class. I believe that the students I surveyed choose dogs because they have a dog or they are longing for one.

Twenty pupils from form 2 were asked two questions here is one of them, “How do you travel to school?”. The option that the student were able to choose from we're: walking, biking, bus, or by car. The second most voted was walking. People choose to walk because they may live close to school and do not have to travel far or they have to walk because there parents aren’t able to drop them to school.IMG_4158.JPG


Scatter Chart
This scatter chart show the distance of 20 students travel to school. The question that were asked was “How far away from school do you live (to the nearest km)?” My prediction is that people travel 2 km to school because their parents want to live closer to the school so it is easier to travel. If this prediction is right why are there less people that have to travel 2km. Screenshot 2017-06-13 at 12.11.48 PM.png
