Interpreting data

This week a new group of Pod 2 kids investigated chance by playing the beetle game.
We had conversations about how mathematicians like to gather data (information) and one way to represent this data is to use a ‘stem and leaf’ plot.
Now, it’s all very well to say and do these things …BUT it’s really important to understand the data represented and how to interpret it.
To build our skills of interpreting data we visited the BBC math site and took on some of the challenges available. The result… Kids engaged and wanting to stay inside and do math instead of going to play. This makes this teacher :). Well done, Gang!
