Statistics (Handling Data)
In Year 3 pupils should be taught to:
interpret and present data using bar charts, pictograms and tables
solve one-step and two-step questions such as ‘How many more?’ and ‘How many fewer?’ using information presented in scaled bar charts and pictograms and tables.
We continue with organising and sorting data, including revising simple Venn diagrams.
Collect data using a tally chart and present it in a frequency table. Carry out a survey and present the results.
More on tally charts and presenting the information as a graph.
More work on making bar charts from data shown in tally charts.
Introducing bar charts as a way of displaying information, with questions about the data shown.
Interpreting a graph and suggestions on collecting data and producing a similar graph on favourite zoo animals.
Pictograms are a common way of organising and displaying data. Usually the images represent more than one item, making them harder to interpret.
Using data shown on pictograms to make block graphs.
Using the information from a pictogram to make a block graph, all with a gardening theme.
Complete pictograms from given information.
Much more on using Venn diagrams to sort into 3 groups and Carroll diagrams (named after Lewis Carroll) to sort into four groups.
More practice at sorting numbers using Venn diagrams. A good knowledge of tables needed.
