What’s in a Pasifika name? Constructing a name dataset

categorical data ages 12 - 15 years

The lesson introduces Year 9 students to constructing variables and designing survey questions for categorical data through the context of their names. In a teacher‐supported lesson students are encouraged to consider characteristics of names to form variables in preparation for designing survey questions, followed by data collection, and interpreting the resultant datasets. The activity engages students in the first three phases of the PPDAC cycle.
