Introduction to interpreting and handling data – column graphs

A simple PPT lesson which will introduce interpreting and handling data, specifically with relation to column charts/ bar graphs.

It begins by asking students to guess what a blank graph could represent (interpreting data), before moving on to various graphs with questions designed to introduce the vocabulary related to graphs (axis/axes, mode, range) while also interpreting the data.

There is one slide at the end which asks a number of questions to check understanding of the vocabulary and to interpret the graph, and then a final slide which asks students to create their own survey question and think about what the graph could look like.
