'Statistics: Who Reads What?' worksheet

Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Statistics

Curriculum subtopic:   Solve Statistic Problems

Difficulty level:  

Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will learn to answer questions by reading the information in pictogram tables.

 

Here is a pictogram.

It shows the results of a survey, in which children of different ages are asked about their favourite types of books.

The key shows us that one stack of books represents three children.

 

Book pictogram

 

The pictogram shows that six of the 10-year-olds chose Adventure books, while 12 10-year-olds chose Action books.

 

Let's try an example question together. 

 

Example

Which is the most popular type of book for 10-year-olds?

 

Answer

Looking carefully at the pictogram, we can see the following information:

6 ten years olds prefer Adventure books. 

21 ten years olds prefer Comedy books.

12 ten years old prefer Action books.

So, the most popular type of book for 10-year-olds is Comedy.

 

Now you are ready to try some questions by yourself.
