Collecting Data

Go to : http://spreadsheets.google.com/ccc?key=pRxhCB2-t_XNzfa4rqUiwag to complete a class survey.
We will compile the data and create some visualisations such as pie charts, bar graphs and column graphs.

Interpreting Data

Mean (average), median (middle score), mode (most frequest score) and range (difference between maximum and minimum)

We shall also be participating in a collaborative project with schools from around the world at Maths Connections. Go to this wiki page (you may need to apply to registerand wait for an organizer to approve you) and make a comment on one of the student pages that we have been paired with.
