Year 4 explore data

We are exposed to and use new information every day, so it is important to understand how to collect and present that information in a way that helps us interpret it efficiently. In maths this week, Year 4 have been exploring discrete and continuous data, deciding which graphs, charts or tables would be most suitable for collecting and presenting which types of data. As well as voting on our favourite rainforest animal and presenting this in a bar chart, we discovered that line graphs are best used to represent continuous data and that pictograms allow us to visualise the data easily. We used this knowledge, as well as our knowledge of mathematical vocabulary to ask and answer questions about the data. We're very proud of our work this week and look forward to applying the skills we've learnt.
