This activity develops recognising, understanding, and drawing of pie charts (level 6/7).
In this activity, students are challenged to match pie charts to tables of ingredients for porcupine feeds. This should prompt discussions of the proportions involved.
This activity should allow students More…to see that pie charts represent proportions only and do not represent fixed amounts – hence there being more than one table to a pie chart. The activity can also act as a prompt to revise how to draw pie charts from given values.
