Target students 

These activities are intended for students who use a range of strategies for the addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers. They should recognise the difference between categorical and numerical data and have experience using the statistical inquiry cycle (PPDAC model).

The following diagnostic questions indicate students’ ability to make sense of numeric data. That includes using graphing technology and calculating simple measures of centre and spread.  Allow access to pencils and paper. A calculator can be used to check answers if needed.
