In this article Jenni Back and Liz Pumfrey look at enriching handling data. They include ideas for lessons and questions that encourage children to think more deeply about the data they a presented with.

Whilst this is in fact a guide for CPD in handling data it is easy to pick up ideas from. It discusses the five stages of the handling data cycle and would provide a good starting point when planning a series of handling data lessons.

With its attention grabbing title, this article is a great read. It contains many starting points for handling data lessons which will engage the children - all linked to chocolate!

This article is based on research undertaken by the University of Warwick. It looks at the importance of critical sense when looking at handling data. It also includes some tasks in which primary school teachers might approach graphing, using critical sense as an important element.
