In maths this week, we have been learning about how to gather information and use it to make a bar chart.
We used tally marks to make it easier to count the numbers. They gave us a very quick way of counting up in 5s. Our investigation questions was: When is your birthday?
We gathered all of the classes birthdays and made them into a bar chart to show how many birthdays were in each month. The chart had to have a scale on the vertical axis and labels on the horizontal axis. It also had to have a title to tell us what the information was all about.
When we had made the chart, we had to count the tally marks and draw the bar going to the correct number on our chart.
