Data Task Cards

Data Task Cards
View Curriculum Codes   

The perfect data activities for fast finishers or for your numeracy groups. These cards can be given to students to work through one at a time, or, have them turn it into a game by pulling one out at random and rolling a dice to select which question or activity they need to complete. Once they complete that activity, or the whole card, they can trade it in for another one.

This resource is part of a larger unit designed for Year 6 that helps students develop their understanding of the different types of statistical variables they are likely to encounter during statistical investigations at this level.
