Statistics Learning Journey

Learning Objective

Evaluate the effectiveness of different displays in representing the findings of a statistical investigation or probability activity undertaken by others

Provocation- Played digital clip of a NZ school that visited Australia. What sort of things would they need to know to plan a trip? Class brainstorm.


Create- We created a plan and researched the cost. This involved researching costs in New Zealand dollars. We had to find the cost of air fares and decide what we wanted to travel e.g. business class, economy. We had to find accomodation for 4 nights and estimate travel costs e.g. concession card for tram, train or bus. Then we had to find events or venues we wanted to visit and get the cost for these. Finally we had to calculate the whole cost.


Then we got into groups or 4-5 and compared costs. We had to transfer these findings on to a bar graph and analyse the information presented writing a couple of sentences about the information. Who planned the cheapest trip? Who planned the most expensive and how?


Share/ Evaluate- Next we used practiced making bar graphs with our information. Then using Google sheets tried presnting this data in different ways. We experimented with the different graph options and decided on the best option to use and present to parents on our open evening. We also shared our results to our math group.

Analysis of Data

Candice had the most expensive trip because she picked a more expensive motel and her flights were more expensive.

Holden’s was the cheapest cost because his hotel was cheap, his flights were cheaper and he had cheap food.

There is a $600 difference between Candice and Holden’s price. Zion’s was around $200 dollars less than Candice’s and Seith’s was over two hundred dollars cheaper than Candice. Holden’s was $500 cheaper than Seith’s total cost.

The graph we like best is the bar graph because things are a lot clearer. You can also see the difference clearer than with the pie graph and the size difference is not as noticeable.




My Analysis


The most expensive trip was Sharn’s at $9559. The less expensive was Holly’s at $1456. The difference is $8103.


This is because Sharn went in business class and his accomodation was more expensive.


We liked the pie graph because you notice a big difference in the size difference between the the least and the most.


From here I wonder what it would cost to go to America for a holiday.




`




Our Analysis


The most expensive trip was Chloe’s at  $2334 the least expensive trip was Shyanne’s at $1350. The difference between the most expensive and less expensive was $984.      
I think this was because of movie world being so expensive (where Chloe wanted to go) and the coast of her accommodation which was really expensive.


The graph we liked the best is the  Bar Graph because the bar graph is bright and cool. It is also easy to see that difference in prices.


We would like to learn the different costs of transport like, is it cheaper to go by boat to Australia?


What did you like best about our math inquiry? It was really interesting and it is not cheap for a holiday.








Our Analysis


The most expensive trip was lukhan’s $3058.  The least expensive trip was Jealen $2000. The difference between the most expensive and less expensive was $1058. We think this was because the cost of flights and accommodation was the big difference.


The graph we like the best is the Bar Graph  because it is easier to read than the pie graph.


We would like to learn about the cost of travelling in NZ because there are many places to visit.











Our Analysis


The most expensive trip was Robert at $2504. The least expensive trip was Chahaia at $1093.The difference between the most expensive and less expensive was $1411. We think this was because Roberts accommodation. It was expensive.


The graph we liked the best is the Pie Graph  because we understood it better.


We would like to learn about travelling to America.








Our Analysis


The most expensive trip was candice The least expensive trip was holden The difference between the most expensive and less expensive was $734 We think this was because we used holden and candice’s and took away candice’s with holden’s the activities


The graph we like the best is the  Bar Graph because i liked the bar graph i can see it better. It is sort of 3D.


What did you like best about our math inquiry?
Making the graphs was really fun and easy.


Where to next….

We wonder if we collected all the data together from each group what would it look like.





The most expensive trip was Robert at $2504. The least expensive trip was Chahaia at $1093.The difference between the most expensive and less expensive was $1411. We think this was because Roberts accommodation. It was expensive.


The graph we liked the best is the Pie Graph  because we understood it better and it looked like  a pizza.


We would like to learn about travelling to America.
