In Room 9 we used a tally chart to record what our favourite sauce was with chips.  Lots of children in the class took turns recording the data on the tally chart.  We then transferred that data into the Create a Graph webpage ( and this produced the bar graph at the end of the exercise. It was good fun recording and analysing the data.  Here are some of the questions we compiled about the graph:

-What is the most popular sauce?

-What is the least popular sauce?

-How many children are in the class altogether?

-How many children like plain chips?

-How many more children like red sauce than mayonaise?

-What is your favourite sauce when having chips?
