Departmental Workshops - Structured professional development activities  

Departmental Workshops- Statistical Data

These workshops are written to provide your mathematics team with structured professional development you can deliver in-house utilizing all members' expertise and knowledge. We believe 3 – 6 modules per year could be an ideal balance.

This module explores the teaching and learning of interpreting statistical data .Objectives related to this topic are:

  • interpret diagrams and graphs (including pie charts), and draw simple conclusions based on the shape of graphs and simple statistics for a single distribution (Year 7);
  • interpret tables, graphs and diagrams for discrete and continuous data, relating summary statistics and findings to the questions being explored (Year 8);
  • interpret graphs and diagrams and make inferences to support or cast doubt on initial conjectures; have a basic understanding of correlation (Year 9);
  • analyse data to find patterns and exceptions, and try to explain anomalies; include social statistics such as index numbers, time series and survey data (Year 10);
  • interpret and use cumulative frequency diagrams to solve problems (Year 11);
  • use, interpret and compare histograms, including those with unequal class intervals (Year 11e)
