Maths Investigation/Down the Drain – Task 2 (Graph and Interpret Results)

Task = Draw a line graph to show the volume of water lost over 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10 minutes.

-Design your line graph. Think about your y and x axis as well as the different titles you will use.

-Describe the shape of your graph. Does the line bend? Why? Does the line go straight? Why

-Use your results to calculate how much water a dripping tap could waste in one hour and one day.

-Publish your graph, summary and calculations on the laptops. You can copy it as a comment underneath this comment.

How much water is wasted in one hour from a dripping tap? How much for a whole day? Post your results on the blog.

  1. My line graph was going up because we were wasting more and more water by the minute. It would’ve been going down if it was spilling. If leaking tapes were to keep going, the graph would still be rising. But if most taps in the world were turned off, then the graph would stop. This graph taught me how much I can waste by leaving the tap on.
