Maths: Cinema Attendance By Age

Today for maths, we were to start and complete two different tasks. The first task was about Cinema Attendance by age group. For this task we were to find a partner or work individually to solve a few questions. So I've decided to work with Sanujan. Before we could start reading the questions we were to have a look at the line graph that had the age group attendances. As far as I know there are about 8 question to be solved. Once we were done with answering these questions, we were asked to write at least 2 paragraphs arguing why younger people are visiting the cinema a lot more than the start of the cinema's times.

Question 1: What are scales and axes? 
Answer 1: Axes are the two lines which are used to show the amount of data on the Y and X axes.
                Scale are lines to show your statistics.

Question 2: Is the data discrete or continuous?
Answer 2: The data is continuous, as it can be measured for as long at time goes.

Question 3: Which age is most likely / unlikely to go to the cinema? - Why?
Answer 3: 

                 Most Likely
                 15 - 24 year olds are most likely to go because of the pattern shown on the graph which shows                      that 15 - 24 year old attendance rises and rises after time.
                 However, 7 - 14 year olds are rising up in numbers near the very end of the chart, meaning that                    there is the potential for 7 - 14 year olds to just make it to the top.
                 Most Unlikely
                 25 - 34 year olds, as well as 35 year olds and older seem to be both the lowest on the chart. 
                 The reason as to why they have been put together, is that we think that a few years after the chart
                 ends, that they would have met around the same numbers.

Question 4: In which year was attendance the highest for 25 - 34 year olds?
Answer 4: In between 1996, and 1997.

Question 5: What happened in 1992 and in 1994 with 15 - 24 year old attendance?
Answer 5: That the attendance had dropped ecstatically.

Question 6: What would we predict the cinema admission for 2005 to be?
Answer 6:

                 15 - 24 year olds - 54 percent.

                 7 - 14 year olds - 51 percent.

                 25 - 34 year olds - 38 percent.

                 35 years old and over - 24 percent.

Question 7: How else could this data be displayed?
Answer 7: Bar graph.

Question 8: What newspaper headline could you use for an article based on younger kids visiting the                               cinema more 
Answer 8: The Youngsters Have Struck Back!
