Challenge Task


Have you ever seen a pie chart before?


Think about a typical day in ‘lockdown’. Can you map out your day using this pie chart that has been split into 24 sections for the 24 hours of the day?


Each sector/ section represents 1 hour. Colour code your activities and create a key to show what they represent. Possible activity options might include sleeping, school work, exercising, gardening, art, eating, reading, online chats, TV, online games, chores etc.


Can you 3 make statements from your pie chart in the form of fractions or even percentages?


For example...

-  10/24 of my day I spend sleeping.

- 1/8 of my day is spent doing distance learning.

- 20% of my day is spent watching a screen.
