Students are presented to a range of ready made graphs. Students share and record 3 or more statements about each graph.

1. Students pose three or more questions for collecting categorical or numerical data (whichever is appropriate for each student). They then decide what the outcomes would be for each question.

2. Students then select one of their questions and survey their class mates, collecting their data in a tally.

3. After collecting the data, they display it in an appropriate graph such as a picture graph, bar graph, line graph or pie chart.

Students use playing cards to create a multiplication equation (eg. if a 6 and an 8 are drawn out, the equation will be 6 x 8, if a 2,4 and a 5 are drawn, one equation could be 24 x 5).

Students choose an appropriate strategy to solve the problem. If using the strategy place mat, students could tick the strategy used to keep a record of the strategies they are using.
