Interpreting Data

The students in Five White have been learning about data and how to interpret dataData is information, so interpreting data means finding out what the information is telling us. Data is sometimes shown in tables, graphs and charts to make the information easier to read. It is important to read all the different parts of the graph, table or chart.

Take a look at the column graph below and leave a comment with sentences interpreting the data.

Here are some questions to get you started.

  • What brand of chocolate is the most popular?
  • What brand of chocolate is the least popular?
  • Which brands of chocolate are more popular than Dairy Milk?
  • Which brands of chocolate are less popular than Twirl?
  • How many Crunchie and Snickers chocolate bars were purchased altogether?

    Dear Five White,

    I am enjoying this category of maths a lot. I have learned a lot and i know what to put in it, you have to use a title, y axis,x axis,y axis labels,x axis labels,y axis data,x axis data,create the columns, shade the columns and some more , now I understand how a graph works and how to use it. To prove this I made a graph about Favourite colours and if you want to see it go to this.http://www.chartgo.com/share.do?id=123d9326aa

    See you tomorrow,
