SCHOOL CLOSURE WORK

Maths

 Using Top Marks select any of the times tables activities to complete.

Today you are going to undertake an activity and then create a line graph to display your results. Remember you need a title for your graph. You need to label the X axis (horizontal) and the y axis (vertical)

Think carefully what jumps you want in numbers on the y axis and write each activity on the x axis by turning the book round to write downwards.

This is the activity:

For 1 minute each time see how many:

Star jumps

Hops

Press ups

Knee high jogging

Jumping on the spot

That you can do in the time given – record these and then create your graph using the data.

Then explain why you think the activity that came out with the highest count did so, and the same for the lowest amount.

Complete this in your maths book.
