12.00-12.45 Maths-


Discuss the different graphs. Make suggestions why ages vary, what the data tells us and make some generalizations.

Using this tool at the side of the graph make some comparisons about the different ages. Have a look at the ages of children at 10,11,12,13. Then discuss whether our grade sizes reflect these statistics.

Things to think about and discuss.

The age ranges for males and females varies widely across Australia, which may come as a surprise. Take a look at the age and gender profiles of the following areas:

  • Green Point, NSW, 2251
  • City, ACT, 2601
  • Cairns City, Qld, 4870
  • Esperance, WA, 6450
  • Kosciuszko National Park, NSW, 2625
  • Margaret River, WA, 6285
  • Hahndorf, SA, 5245
  • Anglesea, Vic, 3230
  • Kakadu, NT, 0822

Think about how the communities in those different areas might be characterised – lots of young professionals, lots of older retirees, a population with shorter lifespan – and some of the possible reasons for the age and gender profiles of each area.


See if you can find data for another country. Explain to the others in the grade about the results of the data. Make some comparative statements that explain similarities and differences. Why did you choose that country?

Think of something that interests you. Can you find data to show information about your interest? eg How many people live in country areas of Victoria? How many people have more than 3 cars at their house?

Is it helpful to compare the percentages (%) or the actutal numbers of data?

Discuss and make comments in your maths project book. Print out some data and make some comments about the data you have found.


1.50-3.30- completing the rough plan of your film. You need to make sure that all group members have a task to do. Perhaps someone could be making notes about the costumes or props needed whilst the others are completing their rough drafts of the planning documents.

Your plans should be completed by the end of the double session. Remember that the illustrations are not to be completed with huge amounts of detail. The remainder of the plan should have everything included so that the story boarder has all the information they need to complete the illustrations and text.
