The statistics and probability maths strand for foundation states that the students need to be able to answer Yes or No questions. When marking the roll I like to take that time to get the students to do things related to their work. I might ask them to tell me a word that starts with a letter we have learned, or give them a word and they need to tell me the letter it starts with. This week I have been focusing on yes or no questions. When I call each name that student answers the question with yes or no. Then, as a class we read the data and decide if more people answered yes or no to a question. We practice our counting by counting the ‘yes’ and ‘no’ columns. I find this a fantastic and fun way to slip in a little extra maths.
