Elaboration on this Achievement Objective

This means students will collect, sort and count data. Students will mostly encounter category data. This data arises from classifying, for example sorting data into colour categories. Simple number data generated through measurement with whole units is also manageable. Students should become familiar with displaying category data using pictographs, set diagrams and bar charts. Discussion should centre on similarities and differences between categories, for example “Six more people like hokey-pokey ice cream than vanilla”.
