Talking rubbish for Maths Week Scotland.
Litter detectives shows pupils how to collect and sort litter using pictograms, bar charts and pie charts. We will illustrate how different survey styles, counting versus weighting, yield very different results. Pupils will understand that survey styles and their visual representations can be sometimes misleading. Only the Litter Detectives can crack the case!
