Today we will be looking at data and then graphing it on Numbers. We will be learning about what graphs are appropriate to use for different data sets.

1. Your task is to visit the following website  Census @ School

2. Look at Table 1: Eye colour. Enter this data onto Numbers and use it to create a graph you think is appropriate. Explain why you chose that particular graph and why you think it best displays this data.

3. Look at Table 11: Method of travel to school by state. Enter the date for Victoria onto Numbers and use it to create a graph you think is appropriate. Explain why you chose that particular graph and why you think it best displays this data.

4. Pick any other set of data from another table on this website. Enter it onto Numbers, graph it and explain why you chose that particular graph and why you think it best displays this data.

Below I have created a number of graphs using the same data. The data used was how many points a football team scored in the first 6 weeks of the season.

When we collect data we need to make careful choices about to represent it and which graphs are appropriate to use.

##### On the server,  you will find chapter 2 of Fish. Read chapter 2 on your iPad and complete the Literary Luminary role.  A reminder of the role is stated below:

Your role is to locate a few special sections of the text that you think your group would like to hear read aloud.

The idea is to help people remember some of the sections of the text that might be interesting, powerful, funny, puzzling or important.

1. Choose a passage from chapter 2, to share.

2. Justify why you chose that passage.

Possible reasons for choosing a passage to share:

• well written
• confusing
• interesting
• surprising
• important to the text

Don’t forget to give examples from the text!
