Y7 Data update
Y6 AUS Curriculum
Interpret secondary data presented in digital media and elsewhere (ACMSP148)
investigating data representations in the media and discussing what they illustrate and the messages the people who created them might want to convey
identifying potentially misleading data representations in the media, such as graphs with broken axes or non-linear scales, graphics not drawn to scale, data not related to the population about which the claims are made, and pie charts in which the whole pie does not represent the entire population about which the claims are made
Y6 AUS Curriculum
Interpret and compare a range of data displays, including side-by-side column graphs for two categorical variables (ACMSP147)
comparing different student-generated diagrams, tables and graphs, describing their similarities and differences and commenting on the usefulness of each representation for interpreting the data
understanding that data can be represented in different ways, sometimes with one symbol representing more than one piece of data, and that it is important to read all information about a representation before making judgments
Column (bar) graphs
Tallies and tables
Relating graphs and tables
Misleading graphs (scales, axes, incorrect claims, populations, etc.)
Side-by-side column (bar) graphs
Displaying Data (picture graphs)
Dot Plots (from NAPLAN)
What is data?
Counting Data & Data tables
Aus Bureau of Stats
Exploring data from the Australian Bureau of Statistics & CensusAtSchool (from Y7 AUS curric)
Explore data on the distribution and use of non-renewable energy sources (from Y7 AUS curric)
Larger data sets:
Sort, graph and analyse a larger data set (pie chart, stem and leaf plot, line graph, bar graph, dot plot)
Statistics in Sport
Analyse data of a well-known athlete including creating graphs, calculating averages, etc.
Same data different graphs
Using data sets to create and compare different types of graphs in Google Sheets
Become a statistician!
Choose a topic, write a question, ollect and create a graph (examples: height of classmates, types of pets, number of siblings, etc.) . Analyse mean, median, mode and range.
Skittles dot plots
Create a skittles (or smarties/m&ms etc) dot plot from a given data set, analyse and compare data sets.
Stem and leaf plots
Use cut-out stem and leaf sections to create a stem and leaf plot for given data sets, and cut-outs to identify min, max, median and mode.
Earlier AUS curric
Pose questions and collect categorical or numerical data by observation or survey
Construct displays, including column graphs, dot plots and tables, appropriate for data type, with and without the use of digital technologies
Describe and interpret different data sets in context
Select and trial methods for data collection, including survey questions and recording sheets
Construct suitable data displays, with and without the use of digital technologies, from given or collected data. Include tables, column graphs and picture graphs where one picture can represent many data values
Evaluate the effectiveness of different displays in illustrating data features including variability
Identify questions or issues for categorical variables. Identify data sources and plan methods of data collection and recording
Collect data, organise into categories and create displays using lists, tables, picture graphs and simple column graphs, with and without the use of digital technologies
Interpret and compare data displays
Identify a question of interest based on one categorical variable. Gather data relevant to the question
Collect, check and classify data
Create displays of data using lists, table and picture graphs and interpret them
