Using data to learn about fractions, decimals and percentages

As you know, Mr. Shem is training to be a teacher. Part of his studies involves learning about what makes students happy at school and what makes them motivated to be successful. He needed to do a questionnaire  (click on the link to see it: ShemQuestionnaireForSam) on this topic in 6SS, so we thought we’d do the questionnaire and then use the information in class in order to learn more about fractions, decimals and percentages. This is a very important part of maths in the exhibition as we’ll be exploring a lot of data.

Each group took responsibility for collecting the responses to one of the questions on the questionnaire and then had to work out how to organize and present the data to the class. We told them to:

“Show us, not tell us”

Here’s the pie chart of the first group to finish the task:

      Don’t say that Jin the just were better on the day. But I also hoped that BPS wouldn’t turn up today.
