What a brilliant site you have!!! I love it, especially as it saves me hours and hours of hard work. Others who haven't found your site yet don't know what they are missing!

It is quite frankly the best money I have ever spent on my child. I really cannot thank you enough for providing this, it really is brilliant.

You have the most amazing program. Everybody loves it and the student's results have been in the high 90%'s, it's definitely due to your program.

      • Data representation and interpretation

        • ACMSP068 – Identify questions or issues for categorical variables. Identify data sources and plan methods of data collection and recording

        • ACMSP069 – Collect data, organise into categories and create displays using lists, tables, picture graphs and simple column graphs, with and without the use of digital technologies

        • ACMSP070 – Interpret and compare data displays

  • KS1.Y2 – KS1 Year 2
    • Year 2 programme of study
      • KS1.Y2.S – Statistics

        • Pupils should be taught to:

          • KS1.Y2.S.1 – Interpret and construct simple pictograms, tally charts, block diagrams and tables

  • 2 – Grade 2
    • 2.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 2.MD.10 – Draw a picture graph and a bar graph (with single-unit scale) to represent a data set with up to four categories. Solve simple put-together, take-apart, and compare problems (See Glossary, Table 1. http://www.corestandards.org/the-standards/mathematics/glossary/glossary/ ) using information presented in a bar graph.

  • 3 – Grade 3
    • 3.MD – Measurement & Data
      • Mathematics

        • 3.MD.3 – Draw a scaled picture graph and a scaled bar graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one- and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information presented in scaled bar graphs. For example, draw a bar graph in which each square in the bar graph might represent 5 pets.
