PDF | 7 pages|Grades: 1 - 2

A mathematics investigation involving data collection and representation, embedded in a real-world context.

This open-ended mathematics investigation has been designed to deepen students’ understanding of data collection and representation.

Your teacher would like to give the class a special reward for good behavior. She has set aside 1 hour on Friday afternoon for the class to have the reward. The class must brainstorm five possible reward options, with the most popular activity being selected. 

In this investigation, the students must brainstorm some possible ideas for the class reward. Then they will survey their classmates, graph their results, and determine which reward option is the most popular.

This teaching resource includes:

  • teacher notes detailing a range of important information about the investigation
  • a detailed description of the investigation for students, including step-by-step instructions
  • various planning templates and recording worksheets
  • reflection questions.
