  • HANDLING DATA - Simple Graphing Tools

    HANDLING DATA - Simple Graphing Tools PACK +

    Add, display, compare and analyse data after conducting class surveys. These useful graphing tools allow pupils to switch between different representations - tally, number, block and spots. Although, on the surface, these are for data handling objectives, they also provide a great opportunity for adding and subtracting within a real context. The generic Interactive Grapher (to the left) has space for pupils to type in their own categories as the titles of the columns. Additional, topic-specific, graphers have images as well, enabling pictograms to be built. We have included a printable template to use for collecting data, by adding categories and then tallying.
