Submitted by Natasha Galliford on Mon, 2017-06-12 11:58

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

This resource uses several tables of data and requires the user to complete calculations based on the data such as mean, median, mode and range as well as percentages and rounding. There is also a task where the learner must create a chart based on a table of data.

Editor’s note
There is something for everyone in this robust resource as it’s split into three sections: weather, Premier League and Glastonbury Festival. With answers and curriculum mapping.

## Foam squares Functional Maths - ICT investigation

#### Level: L1, L2

Here is another Level 1-2 variant on the classic ‘Smarties’ investigation which incorporates the use of a PC and Excel. I stopped using Smarties and Skittles because of the health and hygiene issues.
I stumbled upon the Foam squares at www.craftpacks.co.uk ‘Giant Jar of Foam Squares for £4.75 + 20% VAT. The exercise is in two parts: the first part a bit like Smarties and then the second part covers ‘mean, mode, median and range’.

#### Resource type: Investigation or project, Worksheet or assignment

One of our most endearing and popular resources. This excellent investigation for mixed ability groups has inspired many other Skillsworkshop contributors to create related Smartie resources (see below for just a small selection). Covers almost all data handling curriculum elements from Entry 1 to Level 1 along with other elements from N1 (whole numbers) and Measure. Topics covered include counting, estimating, addition, sorting, tallies, bar charts, mean, range and more.
