__ __

__ __

__Objectives :__

· Write an
information text based on students’ interests.

· Collect the facts
using a bar graph.

· Interpret the
results using fractions and percent.

· Creat histograms
and other types of graphs using logiciel Excel.

·
Students work in groups
of two. The students choose a theme (e.g. favorite foods, favorite sports,
favorite movies…) and conduct a survey. Their survey involved two
distinct levels of students (e.g. gr.1 and 6 or K. and gr.5).

·
Using the results of the
survey and the bar graphs the students can apply their knowledge of fractions
and percent.

·
The students analyse
their results and write a summary explaining the steps taken in gathering their
information and facts.

·
The students attach this
summary to different types of graphs (the obligatory histogram and one from the
choices offered by the program), with the help from Excel.

__Suggestions
and tips :__

·
The majority of the students
were already familiar with Logiciel Word. Students worked individually without
needing formal instruction. They solved their own problems through trial and
error.

·
For the Excel program a
twenty minute course was given using
the Multi Media projector.
