reSolve: Statistics: Shoes
This lesson engages students in gathering and representing data on the shoes that students wear to school. Students work together as a class to sort their shoes into different categories of their choosing. They organise and represent their data using a picture graph, then use the graph to answer questions and make simple inferences. The lesson is outlined in detail including vocabulary, curriculum links, discussion points, student materials and further activities. This sequence is part of the reSolve: Mathematics by Inquiry program.
