Data is a collection of facts about something. Data can be stored in a computer's memory. Data can be in different forms such as numbers, words, pictures and movies.
Lesson 1 - Ice Cream Data: Look at the data about the ice cream sundaes. What kinds of data are given? What other kinds of data might you collect about ice cream sundaes? What kinds of number data could you collect about ice cream sundaes?
Choose one ice cream sundae from the menu. Record data about the sundae including:
Ice cream flavour
Other data of your choice
Use the Popplet app. In the centre of the Popplet, insert the picture of the ice cream sundae. Add each piece of data about the ice cream sundae into a new popple.
Lesson 2 - Ice Cream Flavours: Which flavour ice cream do you like best? Use the Learning Tools app to answer True or False to show which flavours you like best.
We can record the data about our class's favourite flavours using numbers. Can we show the data using unifix cubes? Let's build a graph using unifix cubes to tell about the favourite ice cream flavours.
Take a picture of the graph. Import the Picture into Book Creator.
Lesson 3 - Our Favourite Mix-ins: Which mix-ins do you like best? Use the Learning Tools app to answer True or False to show which flavours you like best.
We can record the data about our class's favourite flavours using numbers in a spreadsheet.
A spreadsheet is a special kind of program that we can use to collect and show data.
Open the Numbers Spreadsheet. Use the spreadsheet to record the numbers of people who liked each mix-in.
Take a screenshot of the graph and the table. Import the Picture into Book Creator.
