OUTCOMES A student: describes and represents mathematical situations in a variety of ways using mathematical terminology and some conventions MA3-1WM selects and applies appropriate problem-solving strategies, including the use of digital technologies, in undertaking investigations MA3-2WM orders, reads and represents integers of any size and describes properties of whole numbers MA3-4NA

OVERVIEW
Recognise, represent and order numbers to at least tens of millions apply an understanding of place value & the role of zero to read & write numbers of any size state the place value of digits in numbers of any size arrange numbers of any size in ascending & descending order record numbers of any size using expanded notation, eg 163 480 = 100 000 + 60 000 + 3000 + 400 + 80 partition numbers of any size in non-standard forms to aid mental calculation, eg when adding 163 480 & 150 000, 163 480 could be partitioned as 150 000 + 13 480, so that 150 000 could then be doubled & added to 13 480 use numbers of any size in real-life situations, including in money problems -interpret information from the internet, the media, the environment & other sources that use large numbers recognise different abbreviations of numbers used in everyday contexts, eg \$350 K represents \$350 000 round numbers to a specified place value, eg round 5 461 883 to the nearest million Identify and describe factors and multiples of whole numbers and use them to solve problems determine all 'factors' of a given whole number, eg 36 has factors 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9, 12, 18 & 36 determine the 'highest common factor' (HCF) of two whole numbers, eg the HCF of 16 & 24 is 8 determine 'multiples' of a given whole number, eg multiples of 7 are 7, 14, 21, 28, determine the 'lowest common multiple' (LCM) of two whole numbers, eg the LCM of 21 &63 is 63 determine whether a particular number is a factor of a given number using digital technologies - recognise that when a given number is divided by one of its factors, the result must be a whole number solve problems using knowledge of factors & multiples, eg 'There are 48 people at a party. In how many ways can you set up the tables & chairs, so that each table seats the same number of people & there are no empty chairs?'

Background Information Students need to develop an understanding of place value relationships, such as 10 thousand = 100 hundreds = 1000 tens = 10 000 ones. Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: ascending order, descending order, zero, ones, tens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, millions, digit, place value, expanded notation, round to, whole number, factor, highest common factor (HCF), multiple, lowest common multiple (LCM). In some Asian languages, such as Chinese, Japanese and Korean, the natural language structures used when expressing numbers larger than 10 000 are 'tens of thousands' rather than 'thousands', and 'tens of millions' rather than 'millions'. For example, in Chinese (Mandarin), 612 000 is expressed as '61 wn, 2 qin', which tran slates as '61 tens of thousands and 2 thousands'. The abbreviation 'K' is derived from the Greek word khilios, meaning 'thousand'. It is used in many job advertisements to represent salaries (eg a salary of \$70 K or \$70 000). It is also used as an abbreviation for the size of computer files (eg a size of 20 K, meaning twenty thousand bytes).

Place Value Write 15 642 on the board and ask a student to read it. Discuss the value of each digit, establishing particularly that the one represents ten thousand, but the number is read as fifteen thousand. Change the 15 to 3 and repeat. Point out that a space is left between the thousands and hundreds to make the number easier to read. Repeat with numbers such as 156 342, then 1 243 675, to establish the value of hundred thousands and millions and the way in which the numbers are read.

OUTCOMES A student: describes and represents mathematical situations in a variety of ways using mathematical terminology and some conventions MA3-1WM selects and applies appropriate problem-solving strategies, including the use of digital technologies, in undertaking investigations MA3-2WM gives a valid reason for supporting one possible solution over another MA3-3WM selects and applies appropriate strategies for addition and subtraction with counting numbers of any size MA3-5NA

OVERVIEW

Background Information In Stage 3, mental strategies need to be continually reinforced. Students may find recording (writing out) informal mental strategies to be more efficient than using formal written algorithms, particularly in the case of subtraction. Eg, 8000 673 is easier to calculate mentally than by using a formal algorithm. Written strategies using informal mental strategies (empty number line): The jump strategy can be used on an empty number line to count up rather than back. The answer will therefore be 7000 + 300 + 20 + 7 = 7327. Students could share possible approaches and compare them to determine the most efficient. The difference can be shifted one unit to the left on an empty number line, so that 8000 673 becomes 7999 672, which is an easier subtraction to calculate. Written strategies using a formal algorithm (decomposition method):

An inverse operation is an operation that reverses the effect of the original operation. Addition and subtraction are inverse operations; multiplication and division are inverse operations. Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: plus, sum, add, addition, increase, minus, the difference between, subtract, subtraction, decrease, equals, is equal to, empty number line, strategy, digit, estimate, round to, budget. Teachers should model & use a variety of expressions for the operations of addition & subtraction, & should draw students' attention to the fact that the words used for subtraction may require the operation to be performed with the numbers in the reverse order to that in which they are stated in the question. Eg, '9 take away 3' & 'reduce 9 by 3' require the operation to be performed with the numbers in the same order as they are presented in the question (ie 9 3). However, 'take 9 from 3', 'subtract 9 from 3' and '9 less than 3' require the operation to be performed with the numbers in the reverse order to that in which they are stated in the question (ie 3 9).

Confirm some answers using number lines, e.g. - How much did we adjust our number by to reach the nearest multiple of (10, 100 or 1000)? Explain that rounding to the nearest 10, 100 or 1000 can be used as a strategy for addition and subtraction. Write 93 69 on the board. Ask students: - What multiple of 10 is nearest to 69? - What is 93 subtract 70? - Have we subtracted more or less than 69? - How should we adjust the answer to make it correct? Emphasise that the extra 1 we subtracted must be added to 23 for the answer to 93 69. Record the process as: 93 69 = (93 70) + 1 = 23 + 1 = 24 and demonstrate on a number line, e.g.

## Revise the rules for rounding

Repeat with calculations such as: 368 + 51, 286 97, 5250 1998, 458 + 199 etc. Each time emphasise the adjustment to be made and have students record the process on the board. Provide examples for students to practise the strategy. Go over some of the practice examples, asking students to explain how they rounded and adjusted the numbers involved. Write a variety of addition and subtraction calculations on the board, e.g. 73 + 26, 182 95, 6003 5994, 56 29, 73 + 200, 583 71 etc. - For which of these would you use the rounding and adjusting strategy? For each suggestion ask how the calculation would be performed, focussing on the rounding and adjusting. Ask children to suggest how they would tackle the other calculations. Strategies Write 40 + 90 + 60 + 50 on the board. - How would you find the total? Discuss different methods such as looking for pairs with a sum of 100, and starting with largest number first. Repeat with other sets of two-digit numbers. Include numbers that involve doubling and near doubling, e.g. 60 + 70 + 80 + 20 + 30 + 80 + 70; 20 + 80 + 10; 50 + 60. Record the strategies in a list on the board. Introduce three two-digit numbers, e.g. write 28 + 35 + 12 on the board and ask students to

suggest strategies for finding the total, such as looking for unit pairs that make 10, and starting with the largest number. Write on the board the digits: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9. Ask children to add them up. Recap the strategy of finding pairs to 10. Identify that there are 5 pairs that sum to 10. Establish that: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 is equivalent to 10 x 5. Write on the board: 4 + 4 + 3 + 5. - What is multiplication is this equivalent to? Agree it is 4 x 4. Discuss the method the children used to arrive at this. Write on the board: 18 + 20 + 22. - How can we represent this as a multiplication? Establish that the calculation is equivalent to 20 x 3. Discuss the idea of balancing the numbers. Repeat for sets such as 48 + 49 + 50 + 51 + 52 and 26 + 28 + 30 + 32 + 34, and discuss the strategy. Provide addition questions for children to discuss and answer in pairs. Ask them to decide on an appropriate strategy for each, using the list on the board for reference, then find the total. Ask them to record their method so that they will remember how they worked out the answer. Magic Tools Show the table below. Ask the students to find the total of given rows and then given columns.

- What do you notice about the totals? Establish the totals are the same. - Can you find any other patterns in the square? Allow time for students to discuss in pairs, then take feedback, drawing out and listing points such as the following on the board: - All rows, columns and diagonals have the same total (42). - The sum of each pair of numbers on opposite sides of the centre is twice the middle number. - The odd numbers are at the corners. - The sum of the corner numbers is equal to the sum of the numbers in the middle of each side. Remind students that this is a 3 by 3 magic square. - Suppose we subtract 7 from each number, will it still be a magic square? Discuss childrens views and get them to confirm it is still a magic square. - What is the magic total for this square? How could you have predicted this? Collect answers and work through other cases where a number is added to or subtracted from the numbers in the square. List some of the magic totals for the different squares. - What do you notice about these totals? Establish they are multiples of 3. Refer back to the table and remind students that the total is the middle number multiplied by 3. Show the table below. Ask students to find the sum of the first row, then the first column. Confirm these each total 46. - Is 46 a multiple of 4? Agree it is not. Ask students to sum the other rows and columns to confirm they all total 46.

Inverse Operations Write 468 + 573 on the board and ask students to suggest how they might work out the total. Discuss suggestions and demonstrate the informal method of adding the most or the least significant digits first, i.e. 468 468 + 573 + 573 900 11 130 130 11 900 1041 1041 Repeat with 4676 + 768. Emphasise the importance of lining up the digits correctly according to their place value. Set similar questions for students to practise the method on. Check answers and go over any the students found difficult, asking students to prompt each stage of the calculations. - How can we check that the answers are correct?

Background Information Students could extend their recall of number facts beyond the multiplication facts to 10 10 by memorising multiples of numbers such as 11, 12, 15, 20 and 25. They could also utilise mental strategies, eg '14 6 is 10 sixes plus 4 sixes'. In Stage 3, mental strategies need to be continually reinforced. Students may find recording (writing out) informal mental strategies to be more efficient than using formal written algorithms, particularly in the case of multiplication. An inverse operation is an operation that reverses the effect of the original operation. Addition and subtraction are inverse operations; multiplication and division are inverse operations.

## Learning Across The Curriculum

Cross-curriculum priorities

Background Information Students should be given opportunities to discover and create patterns and to describe, in their own words, relationships contained in those patterns. This sub strand involves algebra without using letters to represent unknown values. When calculating unknown values, students need to be encouraged to work backwards and to describe the processes using inverse operations, rather than using trial-and-error methods. The inclusion of number sentences that do not have whole-number solutions will aid this process. To represent equality of mathematical expressions, the terms 'is the same as' and 'is equal to' should be used. Use of the word 'equals' may suggest that the right-hand side of an equation contains 'the answer', rather than a value equivalent to that on the left. Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: pattern, increase, decrease, missing number, number sentence, number line. In Stage 3, students should be encouraged to use their own words to describe number patterns. Patterns can usually be described in more than one way and it is important for students to hear how other students describe the same pattern. Students' descriptions of number patterns can then become more sophisticated as they experience a variety of ways of describing the same pattern. The teacher could begin to model the use of more appropriate mathematical language to encourage this development.

Identifying and completing number patterns With practice, a variety of common number patterns can be identified. This requires careful observation. Identifying patterns involves being able to look at features such as differences (the amounts between numbers) and rates of change (how quickly the numbers are seen to increase or decrease). Often, a pattern will start and you will be required to continue the series. You can do this by first identifying the pattern and then making use of the last number to extend the sequence. Examples: 2, 5, 8, 11, 14, 17, ..., ... addition (+ 3) 100, 96, 92, 88, 84, ..., ... subtraction (- 4) 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, ..., ... multiplication (doubling) 160, 80, 40, 20, 10, ..., ... division (halving) 81, 64, 49, 36, 25, ..., ... decreasing square numbers Sometimes the missing numbers may be located within the number sequence. You can use the surrounding numbers as a guide. Examples: 14, 26, ..., 50, ..., 74, 86 addition (+ 12) 93, 82, 71, ..., ..., 38, 27 subtraction (- 11) 1, ..., ..., 125, 625, 3 125 multiplication (x 5) 1 000, ..., 10, 1, ..., 0.01 division ( 10) Number patterns within tables Sometimes you may be provided with a table or grid which has a series of numbers and a rule to follow. Provided the series of numbers given is already an uninterrupted sequence, the answers which complete the grid should form a pattern. Example:

OVERVIEW
Choose appropriate units of measurement for length recognise the need for a formal unit longer than the metre for measuring distance recognise that there are 1000 metres in one kilometre, ie 1000 metres = 1 kilometre - describe one metre as one thousandth of a kilometre measure a kilometre & a half-kilometre record distances using the abbreviation for kilometres (km) select & use the appropriate unit & measuring device to measure lengths & distances - describe how length or distance was estimated & measured - question & explain why two students may obtain different measures for the same length, distance or perimeter estimate lengths & distances using an appropriate unit & check by measuring record lengths & distances using combinations of millimetres, centimetres, metres & kilometres, eg 1 km 200 m Calculate the perimeters of rectangles using familiar metric units use the term dimensions to describe the lengths & widths of rectangles measure & calculate the perimeter of a large rectangular section of the school, eg a playground, netball courts calculate perimeters of common 2D shapes, including squares, rectangles, triangles & regular polygons with more than 4 sides (ie regular polygons other than equilateral triangles & squares) - recognise that rectangles with the same perimeter may have different dimensions - explain that the perimeters of 2D shapes can be found by finding the sum of the side lengths - explain the relationship between the lengths of the sides and the perimeters for regular polygons (including equilateral triangles & squares) record calculations used to find the perimeters of 2D shapes

OUTCOMES A student: describes and represents mathematical situations in a variety of ways using mathematical terminology and some conventions MA3-1WM gives a valid reason for supporting one possible solution over another MA3-3WM selects and uses the appropriate unit and device to measure lengths and distances, calculates perimeters, and converts between units of length MA3-9MG

Background Information When students are able to measure efficiently and effectively using formal units, they should be encouraged to apply their knowledge and skills in a variety of contexts. Following this, they should be encouraged to generalise their method for calculating the perimeters of squares, rectangles and triangles. When recording measurements, a space should be left between the number and the abbreviated unit, eg 3 cm, not 3cm. Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: length, distance, kilometre, metre, centimetre, millimetre, measure, measuring device, ruler, tape measure, trundle wheel, estimate, perimeter, dimensions, width. 'Perimeter' is derived from the Greek words that mean to measure around the outside: peri, meaning 'around', and metron, meaning 'measure'.

## TEACHING, LEARNING and ASSESSMENT

How Many Centimetres in a Metre? Students make a metre strip using 1 cm grid paper. In groups, students randomly cut their metre into 3 pieces and place all the groups strips into a bag. Students take turns to select and measure one strip. Students estimate and calculate what length strip they would need to add to their selected length to make exactly 1 metre. They are asked to explain how they know it will be 1 metre. Calculations for each strip are recorded in a table. Variation: Students take two strips that together are less than 1 metre, measure them and add the lengths together. They estimate and calculate how long a third strip would need to be to make exactly 1 metre. Students also record the measurements using decimal notation. Investigating Perimeters Students use geo-boards to investigate perimeters of shapes. They use shapes that have square corners. Students construct shapes that have perimeters of 4 units, 6 units, 8 units, etc. They record the shapes on dot or square paper. Students try to make different shapes that have the same perimeters. Students are asked if it is possible to make shapes which have a perimeter of 3 units, 5 units, 7 units, etc. They use the geo-board to make a shape which has: - the smallest perimeter - the largest perimeter Perimeter Match In pairs, students are given a length (eg 16 cm) and are required to construct a two-dimensional shape on a card with this perimeter. The teacher collects, shuffles and re-allocates cards to each pair. Students estimate and then measure the perimeter of their allocated shape. They then find their partner and compare and contrast their shapes. Millimetres Students make a table of things that have a dimension of 10 mm, 5 mm and 1 mm eg the width of a toothpick, the thickness of ten sheets of paper. Perimeters Students estimate and then measure, to the nearest centimetre, the perimeters of small items such as book covers, art paper, leaves. Students record the results and discuss. How Far is a Kilometre? Students discuss how kilometres are used as a unit to measure distance, and the relationship between metres and kilometres. Students discuss the distance represented by 1 kilometre, in terms of distance to local landmarks or walking routes in the school grounds, and the possible time taken to walk 1 kilometre. Students discuss how to measure 1 kilometre in the school grounds, possibly by measuring 100 metres and multiplying by 10. Students estimate, then measure to see how long it takes them to walk 1 kilometre, for example by walking 100 metres 10 times. Variations: students estimate, then measure, how many steps they would take when walking 1 kilometre, or time taken by different age groups of students, or time taken to ride a bicycle or skateboard for 1 kilometre.

Desks Over the Horizon Students estimate, then calculate how many desks aligned end to end would fit into a line 1 kilometre long. Students record measurements and calculations. Variation: students calculate how many times their body length would need to be repeated to measure 1 kilometre or how many times the length of a pair of students would need to be repeated. How Long? Students work in small groups to answer: How long is the wool in a ball of wool? Students may need to discuss a range of strategies before commencing to measure. Students express the measurement in kilometres, and in metres. Introduce Scale Students investigate how the representation of an object is reduced, when the object is drawn to scale. Small groups of students photocopy an object such as a pencil. The pencil is copied again, reduced to 50% of the original size (1:2). The pencil is copied a third time, reduced to 25% of its original size (1:4). Students discuss the lengths of the pencil in the second and third copies, compared with the original length. Students measure the length of an object (watch, pencil case, strip of paper) and predict the length when the object is drawn to a scale of 1:4. Check by cutting a strip of paper the predicted length, folding and using this to measure the object. Whole class discusses why and how maps are drawn to scale, and the units of measure which are commonly cited on a scale. Finding the Detail Whole class discuss how to use a scale to represent kilometres or metres on a street map. Students are given a map of the local area, showing the location of the school. Students use scale and a drawing compass to mark the area within 500 metres of the school in all directions. Students list the street names or landmarks within this area.

OUTCOMES A student: describes and represents mathematical situations in a variety of ways using mathematical terminology and some conventions MA3-1WM uses 24-hour time and am and pm notation in real-life situations, and constructs timelines MA3-13MG

Background Information Australia is divided into three time zones. In non-daylight saving periods, time in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania is Eastern Standard Time (EST), time in South Australia and the Northern Territory is half an hour behind EST, and time in Western Australia is two hours behind EST. Typically, 24-hour time is recorded without the use of the colon (:), eg 3:45 pm is written as 1545 or 1545 h and read as 'fifteen forty-five hours'. Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: 12-hour time, 24-hour time, time zone, daylight saving, local time, hour, minute, second, am (notation), pm (notation).

## TEACHING, LEARNING and ASSESSMENT

Timetables Students access timetables on the Internet or the teacher provides students with a variety of timetables eg bus, plane, train, ferry, theme parks, movies. Students describe any visible patterns eg Buses leave every 15 minutes on weekday mornings. Students calculate the duration of different journeys or events using start and finish times. They develop an itinerary for a given timeframe eg 4 hours. Students plan their ultimate 24-hour itinerary. Students record their itinerary in 12-hour time using am and pm notation, and 24-hour time. Students discuss which timetables use 24-hour time and why it is important. Stopwatches Students read digital stopwatch displays showing time from left to right in minutes, seconds and hundredths of a second. 2:34:26 Students use stopwatches to time various events and order them according to the time taken. Students discuss cases where accurate timing is important eg athletics, swimming, television advertisements. Reading a Timeline The teacher displays a timeline related to real life or a literary text. Students write what they can interpret from the timeline. Olympic Timeline 1896 The first modern Olympic Games held in Athens, Greece. 1900 Women first compete in the Games, in tennis and golf. 1904 1908 1912 1916 Games cancelled due to the First World War. 1920 1924 1928 1932 1936 1940 Games cancelled because of the Second World War 1944 Games cancelled because of the Second World War. 1948 1956 Olympic Games held in Melbourne 1960 1964 1968

'Scalene' is derived from the Greek word skalenos, meaning 'uneven'; our English word 'scale' is derived from the same word. 'Isosceles' is derived from the Greek words isos, meaning 'equals', and skelos, meaning 'leg'. 'Equilateral' is derived from the Latin words aequus, meaning 'equal', and latus, meaning 'side'. 'Equiangular' is derived from aequus and another Latin word, angulus, meaning 'corner'. Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: shape, two-dimensional shape (2D shape), triangle, equilateral triangle, isosceles triangle, scalene triangle, right angled triangle, quadrilateral, parallelogram, rectangle, rhombus, square, trapezium, kite, pentagon, hexagon, octagon, regular shape, irregular shape, features, properties, side, parallel, pair of parallel sides, opposite, length, vertex (vertices), angle, right angle, line (axis) of symmetry, rotational symmetry, order of rotational symmetry, translate, reflect, rotate, enlarge. A 'feature' of a shape or object is a generally observable attribute of a shape or object. A 'property' of a shape or object is an attribute that requires mathematical knowledge to be identified.

What am I? Students select a shape and write a description of its side and angle properties. Students share their descriptions with the class who attempt to identify the shape eg My shape has four sides and four equal angles. The opposite sides are the same length. What am I? Variation: Students create flipbooks recording clues and share with a friend. Students reproduce shapes and clues using a computer software package Barrier Game In pairs, students are positioned back to back. One student is the sketcher, the other student is the describer. The describer describes a given two-dimensional shape focusing on side and angle properties. The sketcher listens to the description and sketches the two-dimensional shape described. The sketcher names the two-dimensional shape sketched and then compares their sketch with the describers shape. The students swap roles and repeat the activity. Properties of Two-Dimensional Shapes Students examine regular and irregular two-dimensional shapes and name their parts. Angle testers, set squares or protractors could be used to compare the size of angles and to identify equal angles. Rulers could be used to compare lengths of sides and to identify sides of equal length. Students are asked to identify shapes that have rotational symmetry. Students could present the information as descriptions of each shapes side and angle properties. Circles In small groups, students draw a large circle in the playground using a range of materials eg ropes, stakes, chalk, tape measures. Students assess their circle and the strategy they used. They label parts of their circle: centre, radius, diameter, circumference, sector, semi-circle and quadrant. Students then investigate materials in the classroom they can use to draw circles eg a pair of compasses, a protractor, round containers, templates. They then draw and label circles. Diagonals Students explore diagonals by joining two geo-strips of equal length at their centres. They then join the ends of these to other geo-strips to form a two-dimensional shape. eg

In groups, students draw their two-dimensional shapes complete with diagonals, and record their findings. The students posters could be displayed.

Enlarging and Reducing Students are given drawings of a variety of two-dimensional shapes on grid paper. Students enlarge or reduce the shapes onto another piece of grid paper. Possible questions include: - what features change when a two-dimensional shape is enlarged or reduced? - what features remain the same? - do properties change or remain the same? Why? Students explain the process they used to enlarge and reduce two-dimensional shapes.

OUTCOMES A student: describes and represents mathematical situations in a variety of ways using mathematical terminology and some conventions MA3-1WM locates and describes position on maps using a grid reference system MA3-17MG

Background Information In Stage 2, students were introduced to the compass directions north, east, south and west, and north-east, south-east, south-west and north-west. In Stage 3, students are expected to use these compass directions when describing routes between locations on maps. By convention when using grid-reference systems, the horizontal component of direction is named first, followed by the vertical component. This connects with plotting points on the Cartesian plane in Stage 3 Patterns and Algebra, where the horizontal coordinate is recorded first, followed by the vertical coordinate.

Students then write a variety of questions related to the map using coordinates. The Best Route Students are given a scaled map of their suburb or a section of a city and are asked to locate two points of interest. On the map, students show the shortest or best route between the two points. Students write a description of the route using grid references, compass directions and the approximate distance travelled. Variation: On a large map of the local area, all students plot their home and the route they use to get to school. They then write a description of their route. Enlarge Me/Reduce Me Students are given a simple map, with a scale, covered by a two-centimetre grid. On a separate piece of paper they draw a four-centimetre grid and copy the map. They then draw a onecentimetre grid and copy the map. Possible questions include: - did doubling/halving the size of the grid double/halve the scale? Why? - did doubling/halving the size of the grid double/halve the size of the map? Why? - how could you use this method to enlarge/reduce a smaller section of the map? Paper Rounds In pairs, students are given a street directory of the local area. The teacher gives them the addresses of the places where they will start and finish their paper delivery and students use coordinates to find these places.

Background Information Column graphs are useful in recording categorical data, including results obtained from simple probability experiments. A scale of many-to-one correspondence in a column graph or line graph means that one unit is used to represent more than one of what is being counted or measured, eg 1 cm on the vertical axis used to represent 20 cm of body height. Line graphs should only be used where meaning can be attached to the points on the line between plotted points, eg temperature readings over time. Dot plots are an alternative to a column graph when there are only a small number of data values. Each value is recorded as a dot so that the frequencies for each of the values can be counted easily. Students need to be provided with opportunities to discuss what information can be drawn from various data displays. Advantages and disadvantages of different representations of the same data should be explicitly taught. Categorical data can be separated into distinct groups, eg colour, gender, blood type. Numerical data is expressed as numbers and obtained by counting, or by measurement of a physical attribute, eg the number of students in a class (count) or the heights of students in a class (measurement). Language Students should be able to communicate using the following language: data, survey, category, display, tabulate, table, column graph, vertical columns, horizontal bars, equal spacing, title, scale, vertical axis, horizontal axis, axes, line graph, dot plots, spreadsheet.

Picture Graph Students collect data for organisation into a picture graph eg daily canteen sales of pies, drinks, ice blocks. Students decide on an appropriate scale, symbol, and key eg = 10 drinks. Possible questions include: - what key did you use? - have you given your graph a title and a key? - what is the mean for the set of data? - how did you determine the scale? - how do the scale and key enable interpretation of your graph? - can you pose three questions that can be answered using the information from your picture graph? The students could represent data in a picture graph using a computer. Temperature The teacher divides the students into two groups. Students in the first group record the temperature in the playground every hour, while the students in the second group record the temperature every half hour, for a day. In groups, students draw a line graph to display their data. The first group estimates the half-hourly temperatures from their line graph and compares with the actual recordings taken by the second group. Possible questions include: - how have you labelled the axes? - how did you determine a suitable scale for the data you collected? - how did the hourly line graph help you to predict half hourly temperature changes? - is a line graph the most suitable way to represent this data? Why? - who could use a graph like this? Why? - can you record the data another way? Populations of Countries Students use the Internet to find the population of ten countries. They graph their findings using an appropriate scale to represent large numbers. Students are encouraged to represent the data using different types of graphs and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each representation.
