Foreword

Sa m

pl e

Data Handling plays an important part in today's society. People are placed in chance situations all the time and meet statistics wherever they turn. This book is designed to give pupils a relative and practical introduction into this area of mathematics. Data is a specific strand in the mathematics curriculum, with strand units on 'Representing/Interpreting Data' and 'Chance'. Data Handling provides a variety of opportunities for pupils to develop data handling skills, including to: • collect, classify, organise and represent data using concrete materials and diagrammatic, graphical and pictorial representation • read, interpret and analyse tables, diagrams, bar charts, pictograms, line graphs and pie charts • appreciate, recognise and express the outcomes of simple random processes • estimate and calculate using examples of chance • use acquired concepts, skills and processes in problem-solving All activities have been based on experiences familiar to children. Each activity can be extended to provide more difficult situations or problems.
