Last week we asked you to keep a record of how much water/liquid you drank each day in ml. Today we would like you to represent your data in a chart of some kind. You have the choice of:
If you have an iPad you can use the Numbers App (we have used this in school) or if you have MSWindows you can use Excel . Input your data for each day and create a chart of your choice. You can either complete a 'Blank' grid or use 'Charting Basics' in the Numbers App.
In a 'Blank' grid, type the days of the week across the top, writing your data in the cells below. In Excel highlight all the cells and then click on 'incert' and pick a chart from the menu. In Numbers highlight all the cells, click on 'cell' then 'create new chart', pick your chart. You can then save or take a screen shot of your chart and email it to us!
Draw a bar chart in your exercise book. You will need to label the y and x axis, think carefully about the scale, colour in the bars neatly and give your bar chart a name. The scale is how many ml one line or square be worth.
Now write some questions for someone to answer about your bar chart. Examples: On which day did I drink the most water? What is the difference between how much water I drank on Tuesday and Wednesday? How much water did I drink altogether?
Complete Fantastic, then write instructions explaining how to draw a bar chart. Remember to use words like, First, Then, Next, After that and Finally.
