- At a Bristol primary school, teacher Simon Mills uses an innovative project to successfully teach his Year 4 class data handling. Simon uses the problem of the distribution of colours in a tube of sweets to explore the challenge of understanding frequency and interpreting and presenting data. The class worked in the school's ICT suite over three lessons to initially build a frequency table in Excel, then moved on to constructing a bar chart from these tables. In the final session, the children labelled and titled their charts and discussed the best ways to represent their results.
The opportunities and problems involved in using ICT to teach data handling at KS2 maths are explored by Bristol University Graduate School of Education authorities, Professor Rosamund Sutherland and Jan Winter.Rosamund and Jan scrutinise three lessons taught by Bristol year four teacher Simon Mills. They look closely at the ICT implications in the lessons, focus on the strengths of the physical environment of the ICT suite and the use made by the teacher of the hardware, including the interactive whiteboard. The two experts discuss the merits of using grown up software in the lessons and at the strategies employed by the teacher to facilitate peer learning in the sessions.
