Statistical Investigations

This term we have been carrying out statistical investigations based on the London 2012 Olympic games. All students came up with a 'wonder question' that they wanted to investigate. Once they decided on their question they recorded their data using tally marks. The collecting of data was done over the 2 week period as part of homework.
Meanwhile, in class we were busy learning about different graphs; stem and leaf, block, bar, column, dot plot graphs and pictograms.
When Room 3  finished collecting the data for their statistical investigations they needed to publish their results. They had to decide on 3-4 graphs that best displayed their results. The final part of the investigation was to write a statement about their results.
Here are a few examples of students sharing their statistical investigations:
