Working With Frequency Diagrams

Every classroom I've ever seen asks students to collect data in raw form, and then analyze that data in one form or another. The raw collection seems easy enough. But the reality is, while most students can collect their data, many don't know how to analyze it or interpret data already placed in a pie chart, pictograph, frequency diagram, or bar graph (just to name a few).

So, it's off to BBC we go to play a game called Frequency Diagrams with Dick and Dom. This is an interesting game that will ask the player to figure out some totals based on given data. 

Next up, staying at the KS2 Bitesize (BBC) website, take this quiz on frequency diagrams.

For teachers, I came across this great site called Math Worksheets 4 Kids. Specifically I have attached a link to a page that has worksheets for Statistics. Check out the tally worksheets they have there, it's simple but will give you a quick view as to whether or not your students understand.
