INTERPRETING AND ANALYSING DATA
• Plans methods for data collection

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

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

• 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

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

• 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

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
