University of Fort Hare Distance Education Project. Core Learning Areas Course: Mathematical Literacy, Mathematics and Mathematical Science. Umthamo 6: Dealing with Data: Using Data to Interact with our Social and Natural Environment

Primary tabs

This mthamo deals with ideas of how to teach data better. It introduces you to some ideas and approaches for a new area of the primary mathematics curriculum called data handling. Some of the questions that will be explored are:

  • What is data? Where do we find data? Why is data handling important.

There will be activities that include:

  • Using a model, or process of stages as a basis for getting learners productively interested in working with data
  • Analysing learner responses to activities you have attempted with them and assessing progress.
