Question 1 of 20

1. How confident are you that you can find opportunities for:

a. adults to use and apply their skills in handling data?


There are many opportunities for adults to handle data.

Conduct a survey with the group. For example, they may investigate the number of smokers/non-smokers, the number of units of alcohol they drink per week, or how many hours they spend a week watching television. They can present the information in whatever ways they choose, such as numerically or pictorially, and discuss the different ways, interpreting the results. They might look at different types of buildings in a street and represent the number or purpose of the buildings in pictograms; they could show the ages of the building or the numbers of floors or rooms in block graphs.
