Maths week

As part of Maths week, ‘Maths is everywhere,’ Year 3 & 4 learnt about ‘Data Handling.’ Their lessons revolved around real life Maths based activities where they conducted a survey on sweets and collected and gathered data from around the school, to find out which sweets were most popular amongst the students and which were least favoured. They then converted the data into tally charts and bar graphs.  They used their knowledge of collecting and handling data by participating in the school fair in which they engaged in making sweet cones to sell. This also gave them the opportunity to experience market research and profit margins.
