Statistics is the gathering
of and display of information on graphs such as bar graphs, line graphs, pie
graphs and pictographs. We can use this information
to answer questions and make changes.
One use of statistics is to
gather information and use this information to make a positive change. For
example the Wastewise team collected data about how much rubbish went to
landfill. The Wastewise team then used this information to teach the children
at Halsey Drive School about reducing their littering.
