Room 2 Maths Cemetery Statistics

Year 8, Room 2 maths class students visited Waimairi Cemetery on Thursday 23 May. In this photo, Sean and Lorelai are standing behind the first headstone at the Cemetery. Buried in this plot is the Archer family.

There is so much information to be gathered at cemeteries. Room 2, Year 8 students spent two hours collecting information from headstones so that they can create graphs, calculate the means, medians, modes and ranges, and summarise their data. It was a beautiful morning and a peaceful place to collect data for our statistical investigation.
