Teacher guide Using ConCensus for mathematical enquiry

TLF ID M019377

This teaching resource demonstrates ways in which real Australian Census data (in this case data from the 2011 Census placed into the ConCensus interactive) can be interpreted and analysed. Population data is presented both in numbers and as a percentage. The representations include data visualisations, graphs and tables. Use data from ConCensus to apply understandings of percentage, proportion and ratio, and to apply ways of representing data in different forms. Carry out your own census by selecting relevant questions from MyCensus. Analyse and interpret the data from your own surveys.
