What pets do the kids in our class have?

multivariate data investigation ages 7 - 10 years

This lesson introduces multivariate whole number data cards for year 3-6 students through the context of pets. The use of the data cards is designed to move students away from collecting single variable data in tables with tally marks to collecting multivariate data to allow for a wider view of their investigative question. The data cards encourage multiple displays of the data as the students notice patterns in the data. This lesson allows students to engage in the entire PPDAC cycle.
