All mathematical topics that are taught in the primary school are born out of the need of children to understand their world. In the process of acquiring and growing in this understanding children encounter various types of numerical data. Often this data acquires significant meaning when seen in relation to other numerical data of a similar kind. When this data is organised into a meaningful form and presented graphically it highlights similarities and differences. Comparisons can be made and patterns observed leading to useful conclusions.
