Dan Summerell (Pondering Dan)▸ U4: Math Connections

An idea for a Year 5/6 Maths task:

Students can take some time to create their own simple game using Scratch (it can be any type; a maze, strategy, quiz). Once they have finished, they allow their classmates to play the game, taking note of all the scores in a chart or notebook.

Once everyone has played the game, students can create a data table of all the scores (how many people got a certain score, etc). From this data, students can find the average score.

Curriculum Outcomes:
– Examine the main components of common digital systems, and how such digital systems may connect together to form networks to transmit data (VCDTDS026)
– Acquire, store and validate different types of data and use a range of software to interpret and visualise data to create information (VCDTDI028)
– Design a user interface for a digital system, generating and considering alternative design ideas (VCDTCD031)
– Develop digital solutions as simple visual programs (VCDTCD033)

– Pose questions and collect categorical or numerical data by observation or survey (VCMSP205)
– Construct displays, including column graphs, dot plots and tables, appropriate for data type, with and without the use of digital technologies (VCMSP206)
– Describe and interpret different data sets in context (VCMSP207)
