Confusing curriculum statements

    Is it just me that gets confused by the NC statements!?
    I'm currently planning for a Y4 lesson on statistics and have been looking at the 'Solve comparison, sum and difference problems using information presented in bar charts, pictograms, tables and other graphs'
    I'm a little confused as to what I need to do for that, I have the general idea that to compare they need to look at other data and say whether it is the same/different to theirs and how, for sum I assume they have to add some data values together and for difference take some away? I just don't feel like that's right so any advice would be great!!

    I'd say you are correct. E.g. give them a bar chart or pictogram of favourite colour then ask questions like;
    How many people in the survey?
    How many liked blue or green?
    How many more liked red than blue?

    Make it easier for yourself by getting them to survey each other.
