Scatter graphs

We have had lots of fun collecting data for our scatter graphs. We measured our height and asked each other our shoe size to see if the two are related. You can see that all the points representing height and shoe size lie approximately along a straight line. This shows that there is a…

We had to plan an experiment which would test which spoons would be best for a refreshment stall holder to use to stir hot soup. We learnt lots from the experiment as it didn't work!
