Let's have a whale of a good time! Pupils refresh their knowledge of conversions between units of measure. They use a table of values of whale lengths and weights to compute missing measurements in the second of a two-part series on representing data.
- Create a graph to display the length and weight of the whales
- Lead a discussion on the importance of using the same units to make comparisons
- The class should be able to make basic measurement conversions of lengths and weights
- Includes an answer key
- Provides suggestions to extend the activity
