Canadians'
Reading Habits lets your child create an argument about the reading
habits of Canadians in different age groups based on secondary data
collected by Statistics Canada.

To use Canadians' Reading Habits, select a population from the pull-down
menu. Look at the various age groups. Which groups read more books, magazines,
or newspapers? Look at how often they read. Make inferences and convincing
arguments that are based on the secondary data.

Create
a Graph lets your child make a graph. Use the range of data from
Canadians' Reading Habits.

To use Create a Graph, type in the title of the graph, and the horizontal
and vertical titles. Calculate the number of bars needed for the bar
graph. Type the name, value, and colour for each bar. Choose the 3-D
option, graph direction, and graph size. Click 'Create Printable Graph'
to see the results.
