This is a maths resource that engages students with their ferry crossing on Red Funnel ferries.
The resource task enables them to practise their data handling skills. Pupils are asked to read and handle data about the Red Funnel ferries.
This resource can be completed in the classroom pre-visit or post-visit.
The tasks can be integrated into lessons at any stage throughout the academic year as a revision tool or for data handling practice.
It is anticipated that students will have an enriched experience as they will be reflecting on their school visit activities in a creative way, and this will reinforce how the effective handling of data can provide solutions to problems.
Key Skills Practised
Investigating and comparing statistics
Asking and answering various mathematical questions
Using appropriate language to make comparisons
Identifying appropriate calculation strategies to solve problems
Handling larger numbers over 4 digits
Writing numbers showing correct place value
The tasks are presented in such a way that they can be simplified or made more complex depending on the ability of the pupils. The intention is that the tasks are worked on in mixed ability groups offering opportunity for discussion about processes, operations, strategies and evaluations. Students will learn to read and use data using the Red Funnel ferries as their resource material. The relevant information is provided, but further data can be obtained from the Red Funnel website. They will use the data to provide answers to given problems, and they will be encouraged to pose their own questions to answer.
Students will demonstrate their data handling skills leading to a fluency demanded in the programs of study. They will show evidence of data collection, various recording methods, comparisons and the subsequent use of this data to provide solutions.
