We are learning statistics !

What a big word !

We know it means the collection, organisation and interpretation of data.

We ask some questions, get some answers, and use a graph to show our results !

Today we looked at flavours of ice cream since it has been so hot here !

Here's how it turned out !

Room 13 did a survey about our favourite ice cream flavourpastedGraphic_1.pdfs.
We started with about 20 flavours and then chose our top 6.
We then voted for our favourite. We used PAGES to graph our results.
The results were that 50% of the class liked orange chocolate chip.
The next favourite ice cream flavour was Mango with 31%.
After Mango came cookies and cream with 12% of us liking it.
There was a tie between chocolate chip and feijoa with 4% of the class liking each one.
Jelly Tip was last with zero votes.

We hope you learned a little bit more about statistics!  There's that big word again ! 
We also hope this didn't make you go out and eat heaps of ice cream!

WHy not leave us a comment about your favourite flavour.

Bye !
