This is a maths resource that engages students with their ferry crossing with Red Funnel.
The resource task enables them to practise their data handling skills.
Students are asked to investigate the arrangements for a trip to the Isle of Wight using the Red Funnel website for their source material.
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 prices
Identifying appropriate calculation strategies to solve a complex problem
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. This may not be appropriate in the lowest ability groups. Students will learn to collect relevant data using the Red Funnel website. This will include timetables and price charts for different ferries and other modes of transport. They will use this to provide an answer to a problem.
Students will demonstrate their data handling skills leading to a fluency demanded in the programs of study. They will show evidence of data collection, recording, comparisons and the subsequent use of this data to provide solutions.
