Lesson 1

LI: To use line graphs to solve problems.



Kim drives 78km and Dan drives 109km. How much further does Dan drive?



A line graph consists of a series of points connected by straight lines. Line graphs are often used to show how something changes over time.


To read a line graph we need to find the points in relation to both axis.


Take a look at question B1 from your work pack. The graph shows information about the amount of boxes of cornflakes a supermarket has in stock.


By looking at the graph you can see the line dips and they rises rapidly and then decreases again. This is showing that the stock in the supermarket is being bought by customers, this means that the stock will reduce until it is restocked. So for Q1 the answer would be on the 8th of April as that is when the stock returns to its highest levels.


Complete the rest of B and if you really want a challenge try C too!


Lesson 2

LI: To read and interpret tables.


Yesterday we finished looking at line graphs to show information, now we are going to look at tables and how they present information.


Take a look at Q1 of your work pack.


The table shows the weight of five dogs, to the nearest kilogram.

1a asks use 'What is the total weight of Buster and Titch'?. Now, when a question is asking for the total we need to use addition to find our answer.


What answer did you get? Can you use the inverse operation to check your answer?!


Complete the rest of the sheet. Pay close attention to the vocabulary used and the titles of each column.


Lesson 3

LI: To use two-way tables.


Today we taking it a step further! We are going to be looking at tables that provide 2 sets of information.


Look at Q1. It shows the amount of people who viewed a film. We have 2 sets of information (adults and children).

Here you need to pay close attention to the titles of the columns and rows to find our answer. 1a asks us to find the amount of children who watch at 7pm. So we find the 'children' heading and follow that column down until we find the '7pm showing'. So, 12 children watched the show at 7pm.


For 1c. You will need to total the amount of adults and children at 3pm then deduct that from the amount of seats (100).


Go ahead, complete the rest :D


Lesson 4

LI: To use timetables


Timetables are incredibly useful in our everyday life. Without them we may not know when our favourite TV show will be on or whether we can catch a bus at 12pm on a Saturday afternoon! Or even, when golden time will start! :-s


Timetables show us when things will happen.

Take a look at Q1. This timetable may look a little different to ones you have seen before so pay close attention to the key provided underneath it. The colours help us to clearly see when things are happening at the main pool at the leisure centre.

1a wants us to answer whether its true or false that the Family Swim session starts at 09:00? For this, find the blue label as this indicates the time the Family Swim session is happening. So does it start at 09:00? When does it finish?
