We are going to be using what we have learnt earlier in the week about tally charts to help us draw a bar chart. We have experienced drawing a few bar charts in Year 3 so far, but please watch and engage with the video and then complete the activity.
It's a bit different today. You will need a dice (see interactive dice link if you do not have one at home), a ruler, a sharp pencil and maybe a rubber. The video will explain more, so please watch, but what we'd like you to do today is to complete 30 dice rolls, recording which number to roll in a tally chart. So you will need to:
1. Draw a tally chart to show the numbers 1-6.
2. Roll the dice 30 times, each time recording the number rolled as a tally mark in your chart.
3. Write a total for each tally in the Total column.
4. Using a ruler and sharp pencil, draw and present your totals in a bar chart. Squared paper is attached if you would like to use it for accuracy. Don't forget to include a title, a scale, labelled axes and clear bars.
Times Tables Rock Stars
Next Friday, we have organised a Rock Stars Battle Year 3 v Year 4! So between now and next Friday, please try to practice your times tables as much as you can, so that you are ready to battle!
