## Activity A - If the world were a village

There is a video available about this activity

Imagine the world’s population shrunk to just 100 people. How many people would be European? How many would own a car? This activity explores the wide range of data available and considers how best to present it.

## Activity B – Presenting the project

A good quality, engaging activity requiring the children to use their reasoning skills whilst reading a range of data charts and diagrams. Can they work out whose birthday it is?

## Activity C – The mathematics of Mountains

Some lovely ideas from the NCETM Primary magazine to create and interpret data from line graphs, using nature as inspiration.

## Useful Resources

• Real life examples of timetables
• Rulers
• Dice
• Access to a variety of data
