WALT: construct a tally chart.

We have finished our multiplication and division topic and are today starting our statistics topic. Statistics is all about data and how we record, read and understand it.


When you tally responses you record up to 4 lines (   IIII    ) and then the 5th response will go across the 4 and closes the gate. It then becomes easier to count your responses when dealing with high numbers of data.
