On MathsStarters, I have added a Frequency Distribution Table tool. The tool lets you have 3 to 10 scores, you tally as you go and the frequency and total are calculated.
You could use this on a projector/IWB (the buttons for incrementing the tally are sized for an IWB). Or, students could use this to record data on their own laptop as they collect it – paperless!
Smartie colours are not evenly distributed across the two bags of 11 fun size boxes I used with my class:
Playing with the kids’ toys on the weekend, I came across this car and became interested by the relationship between pulling it back and how far it would travel.
Was it a linear relationship or something else?
Looking around, there are lots of activities for collecting and analysing data using small boxes of Smarties. Here is my version.
