Description
Help plan your school sports day by ordering special T-shirts and socks, and organising buses for all the students. Plot raw data on a dot plot and then group that data according to three criteria or 'rules' to decide on suitable sizes and numbers of T-shirts and socks to order in each group, and to decide the minimum number of buses required and departure times to suit all students. This learning object is a combination of three objects in the same series.
Objective
Students plot numerical data on a dot plot.
Students group data into classes which are mutually exclusive and exhaustive, and which reflect the basis for the groupings.
Students interpret data from a dot plot to draw conclusions based on the reasonableness of groupings.
