Statistical Accounts - Numeracy LI: To display data in a clear way using a suitable scale.
In this lesson, you will be selecting information from the statistical account, organising it and then presenting it in a clear and appropriate way. You will mainly be looking at statistics that relate to population and levels of livestock. What do the words population and livestock mean? Why do you think it is important that we learn about these? L.I.: To display data in a clear way using a suitable scale.
LI: To display data in a clear way using a suitable scale. Copy this table down into your books. You will need to add the number of females to the number of males to complete the final column. You have 10 minutes to do this.
What ways do you think we could display this data? Try to think about the method that would best help you to understand it. Talk to a partner for 2 minutes and be ready to explain why you have chosen the method you state. LI: To display data in a clear way using a suitable scale.
You are going to draw a line graph to show the results on your table. The reason that you will be using a line graph is that it helps us to see any trends in the data. What is a trend and why are they important? With a line graph we can also show all of our results for families, homes, males and females on the same graph. This will allow us to see the relationship between different pieces of data. Remember to label your x and y axis. You will also need four sharp coloured pencil. One for each set of data you are plotting. You will need a key to show which colour goes with which data. Your years should be along your x axis. These must be written on the line and not in the space between them. Your scale for your y axis should go up in equal quantities.

On your desk is a list of the different farms in Eaglesham in 1845 and the number of horses and cows each farm kept. Choose five of the farms and display the information on a bar graph. You can put the number of horses and cows side by side on the graph. Remember to leave a space between your first bar and the y axis LI: To display data in a clear way using a suitable scale.
