# Max Maths, Year 2, Learn together, Making pictograms (2)

In a practical exercise aimed at Year 2 students, the task is to create a pictogram to represent the number of different types of balls found in the school sports room. Tya has diligently recorded the quantities of each type of ball on a piece of paper, setting the stage for the visual representation of this data. The activity involves using a specific symbol, likely an image of a ball, where each symbol equates to one ball. This hands-on method of data representation is an excellent way for young learners to understand and interpret information visually.

The types of balls that Tya has counted include basketballs, tennis balls, footballs, and sports balls, with the respective quantities being four, six, nine, and three. To create the pictogram, students are encouraged to arrange the symbols in rows corresponding to each type of ball, ensuring that the number of symbols matches the recorded data. By doing so, they will produce a clear and informative pictogram. Additionally, students are prompted to give their pictogram a title, further enhancing their ability to present data in an organised and understandable manner. This exercise not only helps with their mathematical understanding of data representation but also encourages neatness and attention to detail in their work.
