This a resource that students can use as data and then practice the methods of representing data. This excellent resource was kindly contributed by my colleague Natasha - Level 5 additional Diploma in teaching mathematics. It aims to teach handling data e.g. mean, mode, median and range in an inter More…esting classroom activity to classify and categorise personal profiles e.g. age, hair colour, type of property etc.. and students use the info to draw their bar charts to represent given data. Thanks Natasha -excellent resource!

Love this resource! Sent it round my department and got a display of pupils' on the wall by the end of the day. Suitable for all abilities going quite far 'down'. I have one suggestion for improvement, however: add another profile and then you can draw a pie chart for hair colour with 24 degrees per person, rather than 360/14 which is awkward? Many thanks, Peter
