Activity - Tally Charts
Today's activity is all about tally charts! The video below introduces the topic and gives you some ideas about the type of data you could collect for your own tally charts. There is also a blank tally chart below the video if you would like to use it. Have fun recording your data!
In today's lesson we are given some data and asked to put it into tally charts. Remember, tally charts are a systematic method of recording data, as we can count in 5s to make it easier for ourselves!
Today we will be using tally charts to create a different represenattion of the data - pictograms! You could use lego bricks, pasts or coins to help 'build' your data before drawing the pictures. Is it easier to read a pictigram or a tally chart?
Today we are going to take completed pictograms and figure out what the data is representing. Then, you'll need to be able to compare the data to make some conclusions from what you see.
In today's lesson, we are going to use all of our fantastic new mathematical knowledge to solve some problems and reason about statements involving statistics.
