Week 4:

Interpreting pie charts

1. Walking is the most common way to come to school for each age group.

2. Cycling to school is very different, as is going by car. This is probably due to the difference in age between Year 2 and Year 6 children.

3. More Year 2 children walk to school; slightly lower percentage-wise but a larger sample of children.

The area of the rectangle is 6 x 3.5 = 21cm².

The area of a rectangle with each side twice the length is 12 x 7 = 84cm².

The area of a rectangle with each side three times the original length is 18 x 10.5 =

189cm².

If the lengths increase by x 2, the area increases by x 2², if the lengths increase by x 3, the area increases by x 3².

The same thing happens for the triangle and parallelogram, the angles remain the same.
