Construct and interpret frequency tables, bar charts with grouped discrete data, and line graphs; interpret pie charts
A new and improved bar charts game. This version uses both vertical and horzontal bars and has a wider range of one step and two step questions. This game is tablet friendly and will work on any device.
View full screen in your browser. This ITP allows you to enter data into a table and then create a line graph to represent the data. You can select from existing data sets, which you can amend to show the impact and changes to the graph. The data table can be hidden so that you can ask questions about the graph, for example, what a horizontal section on the graph means. As data is changed the line graph is updated.
Points on the graph can be dragged up or down to create new graphs and see the data change in the data table. The maximum value on the vertical axis can be changed and the effect of changing this scale can be demonstrated.
The ITP can be used to introduce children to line graphs, to enable them to draw their own and to explore the properties and the ‘story’ told by these graphs.

Parts of the table can be hidden so that you can ask questions about the data, for example, hiding the data values so pupils are to read the values from the graph. The height of the bars in the bar chart can be increased or decreased using the pointers at the base of each bar. This will also change the values in the table and where appropriate adjust the scale.
