This is a photo of a students’ work after completing a data collection and representation activity I use in classrooms. It is a go to mathematics lesson when relief teaching notes have not been left as it requires very little equipment and the students are always engaged in the lesson! All that is required is measuring tapes, scrap paper (for initial data collection), writing utensils and graph paper for students to represent their data. If students have access to iPads or laptops, I get them to also represent their data in a different way, digitally.
Students partner up, and take turns measuring the length of 8-10 body parts (e.g. arm, leg, foot, ear, etc). The same body parts are measured of each person, and then represented to show the data.
