Charts & graphs

I’ve adapted a resource made by Janet Wilkins on your site in 2008 (see link below under See also), on global best selling singles-making a pie chart. I’ve updated it for the digital age! You’ll see what I mean…..enjoy.

I created this resource as practice in data handling for a Level 1 Functional Maths group and it covers skills from Entry 3 to Level 2. It includes creating tallies and charts, using a distance chart, calculating average and range, and working with money. It is fully mapped to the Functional Maths criteria and includes an answer sheet.

My students are 16-18, and have a limited knowledge of geography, so I included an outline map of the UK (not included in the resource) and got them to use a road map to find and mark the cities and towns that are on the distance chart.

An interesting way to improve pie chart skills – whether the chart is calculated and drawn ‘by hand’ or in a spreadsheet. With answer sheet and extension ideas.
