Investigating Our Height – Body Maths (Year 5)

How many students are tall enough to ride on theme park or water park rides requiring the minimum height of 1.4m?
Students investigate their height and that of their classmates. This learning sequence focuses on measurement of length/height in a familiar context and ways of representing data. Students estimate and order their heights using formal units (m/cm), develop understanding of variability, interpret ideas of range, mean, and mode and organise and represent data (categorical/cluster/frequency data). They apply concepts to new data sets.
