M.8.1.600
Large numbers, percentages, weight, money (£), average (mean), estimates. Easter
Students are guided through the steps to estimate the amount of chocolate (in the form of eggs) which children eat in England at Easter and how much money is spent. Students then have to make similar calculations for Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Figures given have been rounded but are reasonably accurate so the sheet should produce some discussion. Students also have to think about the assumptions made to arrive at the estimates. Although the numbers are large, a calculator isn’t really necessary. Note some questions rely on answers from previous questions so students should check their answers before proceeding.
