Visualising data with Numbers

In Year 4, we have been investigating different parts of the human skeleton and whether the size of these parts can effect different activities such as jumping, running and throwing.

Today, we used the results of a self-led investigation to create a visual representation using Numbers. For this, the 2D Scatter chart worked best to show the relationship between the length of each group member's chosen body part and the length of their jump, run or throw.

The students could then use this chart to see any patterns that may have arisen and make an evidence-based conclusion.

Is this missing the resource?

Great idea - easy topic to collect the data and the throwing part is active and fun. Then a interesting topic to analyze.

I'd love to see an example of how students visualized their data in Numbers. Would you be willing to add an example of what their final product looked like?

It would be interesting to also hear students express their thinking about the patterns they notice in the data. You could use the audio button in Numbers for them to add their analysis or screenshot their work in Numbers and move it to Clips to add discussion/narration.

Thanks for sharing this idea!
