Collecting and presenting information: questionnaires and pie charts In this unit pupils learn how to use a data handling package to create bar charts, pie charts and line graphs, and how to use this information to support an argument. Pupils learn to collect information in a way that it can be easily processed; enter data correctly; select and create an appropriate graph for their purpose; consider how to frame questions. They also learn to compare the effectiveness of different charts and use their charts to test hypotheses. Pupils will be able to apply what they have learnt in this unit when collecting information and producing graphs and charts in mathematics, geography and science.
