Functional maths - graphs and charts
Last updated 14 January 2014, created 04 September 2012, viewed 3,505
A functional maths task that helps students develop the language to interpret and describe various graphs and charts. Students have to make up a credible story about a chart or graph. The task can be good fun and has inbuilt peer assessment, which doesn’t have to be used.
The main resource is a Sma More…rtboard file with pictures of the graphs/charts. Differentiation is inbuilt into the task through outcomes but there are also some extra slides to provide prompts and extra discussion points.
