Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. In this lesson, we will be constructing our very own line graphs and presenting different data. We will then be able to interpret and compare the data presented to answer questions and create a series of factual statements.

5 Questions

Look carefully at the line graph below. How many medals did Team GB win in rowing AFTER 2004?
Correct answer: 9
Opps! Someone has incorrectly filled in the table based on the data shown on the line graph. But exactly how many mistakes have been made?
Correct answer: 2
When annotating line graphs to help identify the correct values from the axes, we use a series of lines. Look at the pairs of lines below. How many pairs of parallel lines are there?
Correct answer: 3
When annotating line graphs to help identify the correct values from the axes, we often draw a series of lines. Look at the image below. What do we call two straight lines that intersect (cross over) at a right angle?
Bisecting lines
Horizontal lines
Parallel lines
Correct answer: Perpendicular lines
Look closely at the line graph below. What is the average number of medals that Team GB achieved between 2000 and 2016?
Correct answer: 5

5 Questions

Look closely at the line graph below. Which one of the statements is true?
2016 was the the most successful year for Sally's Sweet Shop.
Correct answer: 2017 was a more profitable year for the shop than 2016.
2018 was the most profitable year.

Look carefully at the line graph below. Since Sally's Sweet Shop opened in 2016, how many months has the shop made a net profit of over £1600?
Correct answer: 3
Look carefully at the graph below. Which of the following statements is false?
Correct answer: Every year, the shop make more profit in December than at any other time of the year.
Sally's Sweet Shop has decreased in profits each year.
The profits of the shop always increase between April and August.
The shop always sees an increase in profit between July and August.
Look carefully at both the line graph and table below. The data point for which Olympic Games has been incorrectly plotted according to the information in table?
1996 Atlanta
2000 Sydney
Correct answer: 2004 Athens
2008 Beijing
During the lesson, we looked at how data from a table might look if it was presented using a different chart. Below is the Pie Chart we discussed. Can you remember why it would be unsuitable to show the data from the medals table?
It doesn't show how many medals have been won by the USA at each of the six Olympic Games.
It doesn't show how well the USA did at each of the Olympic Games.
It doesn't split the data into individual sections to represent each of the different Olympic Games.
Correct answer: It doesn't visually show patterns or changes in the data over a period of time.
