We learn that the Singapore Department of Statistics collected lots of data.
Let's look at some of the data and discuss how we shall represent them visually so that we could extract information at a glance:
(a) Climate and Air Quality
- Refer to the air temperature (means daily).
- Think of a suitable graphical representation to present it on a graph paper.
- On the graph paper, write down "Task: Maths Blog Chap 16 - Data Handling - Data-Driven Singapore (22 April 2010) Climate and Air Quality"
- What kind of information could you tell from the graphical representation?
- Who do you think will find this piece of information useful?
(b) Culture and Recreation
- Refer to the Section 23.5 Visitors to Places of Interest
- Select 2 out of the list of places listed (except The Peranakan Museum)
- Represent the data of these 2 places on the same graph paper with an appropriate choice of graphical representation.
- On the graph paper, write down "Task: Maths Blog Chap 16 - Data Handling - Data-Driven Singapore (22 April 2010) Culture and Recreation"
- (i) Comment on the trend for each museum (ii) Make a comparison between the popularity of the 2 museums.
