Graph/ Pie Chart Prediction

Graham Prior

5th September 2014

Such a simple activity but one which really gets students thinking.

Give each students a piece of graph paper (however ordinary paper will suffice) with some blank graph axes on. Students are then asked to 'invent a graph' for a topic or concept. The same principle also applies to pie charts.

For example, in business studies it could be to draw a pie chart illustrating the methods Maslow might use to motivate employees. In law it could be to draw a graph illustrating how many laws students think have been passed in the UK over the last 10 years.

The more obscure the deeper the thinking and the possibilities really are endless.
