Data Handling

'Data' means 'information'.

Collection of Data

You can collect data by showing it in tables, charts or graphs. It will make the information easier to read and understand.

It is important to read all the different parts of the table, chart or graph when you are working out what the information is telling you.

Watch the video link below for more information.

Presenting Data

A table can be used to display pieces of data about different things.

The title of the table tells us what the table is about.

The headings tell us what data is in each column and row.

Watch the following video for more information.

Displaying data

There are lots of ways to visualise data.

Today we are going to be looking at using a Tally Chart and a Bar Chart.
