What's in Your Bowl?
This Cre8ate maths activity motivates the use of averages, ranges, percentages, bar charts, pie charts, and tables to make comparisons, interpretations and conclusions.
The students can perform the "What is in your bowl?" activities to investigate serving amounts and what is eaten for breakfast. The data collection activities cover estimation and measurement and enable many investigations to be performed: Do boys eat more cereal than girls? What is a typical serving amount? Does bowl diameter affect serving amount? What do pupils eat for breakfast? How healthy are breakfast cereals?
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
