Year 6 take a piece of the pie

Year 6 have been constructing pie charts. They have understood the data and found the ‘whole’. From this, they wrote the data as fractions of the whole, which enabled them to find equivalent fractions with 360 as the denominator. This allowed the children to see how many degrees each section of the pie chart needed to be. Finally, it was just ‘simple’ case of accurately measuring each angle so that the pie chart reflected the original data. It is a complex process, so they were allowed to colour them in!
