Handling Data To solve a problem by organising, representing and interpreting data in tables, graphs and chart. By Amani El-Alawneh

Hello, MI3 M here. I hope you are all well and enjoying life! I have a problem that I would really, really like your help with. Here at my base we have two scientists in charge of representing our data. Their names are Agent A. Weed and Agent C. Weed (they are brother and sister).

They are in the middle of analysing some super sized data to use in our next top secret mission. Unfortunately, they have been called away on another top secret mission and have asked me to interpret the data!! My problem is that they left me data in a tally chart and it makes no sense to me! Please would you help me out? I zapped a copy of the tally chart and special instructions for representing the data. See you later……

This message will self destruct in 5 seconds Frequency means HOW MANY The table is called a frequency table

Reading GroupNumber of books ReadFrequency Badgers Tigers Peacocks Elephants Pigs Spiders Mission One: Find the Frequency for each group by interpreting the tally marks. 16 14 23 4 2 13

Mission Two: Change the frequency table into a pictogram by using a symbol to represent 2 books.

Hi All, M here again. Fantastic, youve completed all three missions. Secret Agent A. Weed and his sister C. Weed told me that I need to find a symbol that could represent 5 books. I cant imagine it! Can you help me to choose a symbol that will be clear and can any easily represent 5 books? Mission Four: Work in pairs to find a symbol that could represent 5 books. Once you have agreed on a symbol, redraw the pictogram using your symbol for 5 books.

Hi MI3 Me here. Well done!! Your pictograms are all fabulous, the only problem I now have is that I cant choose the best because they are all so good!! Agent A Weed and Agent C Weed thank you all M MISSION COMPLETED

What difficulties are there with making pictograms? Which symbols to use? Ensuring that the symbols are the same size? choosing a symbol that is clear and can any easily represent the information?

Number of books read Reading Group Bar charts are a common way to display information
