INTERPRETING AND ANALYSING DATA
  • Plans methods for data collection


add to list
  • Selects, trials and refines methods for data collection, including survey questions and recording sheets


add to list
REPRESENTING DATA IN GRAPHS AND TIMELINES
  • Collects data, organises the data into categories and creates displays using lists, tables, picture graphs and simple column graphs (one-to-one correspondence)
  • Interprets and compares data displays
  • Uses a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and identify trends
  • Interprets data to identify distributions and patterns and draws conclusions


add to list
  • Constructs data displays, including tables, column graphs and picture graphs of many-to-one correspondence
  • Evaluates the effectiveness of different displays
  • Reads and interprets column graphs and picture graphs of many-to-one correspondence
  • Reads and interprets flowcharts


add to list
INTERPRETING CHANCE EVENTS AND PROBABILITY
  • Identifies and describes possible ‘outcomes’ of chance experiments
  • Predicts and records all possible combinations in a chance situation
  • Conducts chance experiments and compares predicted with actual results


add to list
  • Describes possible everyday events and orders their chances of occurring
  • Identifies everyday events where one event cannot happen if another happens
  • Identifies events where the chance of one event occurring will not be affected by the occurrence of the another

KLA APPLICATION AND CONSIDERATIONS

CREATIVE ARTS

  • Collects ideas for creating artworks in graphs and tables
  • Uses rhythm grids or tables of symbols related to numerical values

GEOGRAPHY

  • Collects and records relevant geographical data and information by observing, interviewing, measuring and surveying or other sources

PDHPE

  • Collects data and graphs ways in which people like to be active

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

  • Uses a range of methods to gather data and record observations and measurements including tables and formal units for length, time, mass
  • Uses a range of methods including tables and simple column graphs to represent data and identify patterns and trends
  • Compares results with predictions and suggests possible reasons for findings


add to list

ENGLISH

  • Identifies and interprets different forms of visual information, maps, tables, charts and diagrams

GEOGRAPHY

  • Collects and records geographical data and information, including conducting surveys and using simple statistics
  • Represents data by constructing tables, graphs and maps Interprets geographical data to identify distributions and patterns and draw conclusions

HISTORY

  • Uses graphic communication forms

LANGUAGES

  • Reads and interprets information presented in data displays in the target language, e.g. column graph of pets in the class
  • Conducts simple surveys and collates data in the target language, e.g. the class’ most common birthday month

SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY

  • Uses flow charts, tables and diagrams to identify features of living things
