There’s been a plague in the Rio Olympic Village and it’s turning all the Olympians into weird monsters!

**What?** We are learning to Interpret data through comparing graphs.

**Why?** This will help us to understand how to read and compare different data sets

**How? ** I’ll be able to complete the activity and write a quality blog comment to reflect on my learning

Click on the link above and follow the instructions to help cure the plague! (Use headphones please)

Write a quality blog comment reflecting on your learning , answering these 3 questions:

1) What are tally marks used for?

2) How many different types of graphs can you name?

3) How do graphs help us to understand data?

1) What are tally marks used for?

To help you understand the amount or total of a group of data, or information.

2) How many different types of graphs can you name?

-tally

-t graph

-tangram

-stem and leaf

-bar graph

-pie chart

-line graph

-timeline

-picture graph

3) How do graphs help us to understand data?

So it’s easier to understand or calculate the amount of something that you take or is effected from a group of things.

1) What are tally marks used for?

Tally marks are a quick way of keeping track of numbers in groups of five. One vertical equals one. The fifth number is represented by a diagonal line across the previous four.

2) How many different types of graphs can you name?

– Pie graph

– Table graph

– Line graph

– Bar graph

3) How do graphs help us to understand data?

Graphs or charts help people understand data quickly. Whether you want to make a comparison, show a relationship, or highlight a trend, they help your audience “see” what you are talking about.

To Year 6 Teachers;

What are tally marks used for?

How do graphs help us to understand data?

Graphs make data easier to understand, and to measure/recognize trends and patterns, and to show a collection of data.
