A common but useful source of data for students to use in class is the Australian Bureau of Statistics


This can be use in may areas such as the teaching of mathematics during which students can find the data for the population of various states or cities across Australia and practice putting this in to a comparative graph.

This data source could also be used in a subject such as HASS where students can explore the population and demographics of the areas they live in including mean income and various health factors.

In general, the ABS web sight can be a point f discussion regarding how students thing large amounts of data across a whole country can be collected and curated in to one spot and they could try and replicate such data collection across their school or class.
