This week, we will be starting our next Maths unit all about Data.

Do you know what data is?

Or why we might collect it?

Or what data might be used for?

Or how it is collected?

Well, we will explore these questions and more this week. But firstly, one way we can collect data is by ‘crowd sourcing’ it – asking a question on our blog and inviting people to answer it.

So … what question do you think we should ask that would enable us to collect some useful data??
