Getting to know our new classmates

We are getting to know our new classmates. To help with this we collected information about students’ pets, games, injuries and wheels. We recorded this data in Venn diagrams. Then in small groups we analysed the data and created some statements using fractions or percentages. Below are two examples:

  • 50% of grade 5/6 have a scooter, skateboard and bike.
  • 5% of grade 5/6 have a scooter and bike.
  • 25% of grade 5/6 only have a bike.
  • 20% of grade 5/6 have a bike and a skateboard.
  • 100% of grade 5/6 have a bike.
  • Thirty per cent of grade 5/6 have not required stitches, broken a bone, or had an extraction of some kind.
  • Four per cent of the grade 5/6 have only had stitches.
  • In our class 4% have only had an extraction – both were teeth pulled.
  • Thirty five per cent of grade 5/6 have broken a bone.
  • Forty five per cent of grade 5/6 have had an extraction of some kind, such as removal of tonsils, adenoids or teeth.
