Represent collected data: Year 9 – planning tool

This planning resource for Year 9 is for the topic of Represent collected data. Students are familiar with different types of visualisations of data and variables and can evaluate and interpret data displays. Students can label data as categorical (ordinal or nominal) or numerical (discrete or continuous) and consider which displays are commonly suitable to each (for example, histogram versus bar chart for continuous versus discrete). Students can purposefully collect data in each form and determine before collecting which type of data they will acquire.
