We are...Data Analysts

We have been using YES/NO questions to separate information.

 

First, we played a 'Guess Who?' game with our partners to try to guess which person they had chosen.  We used lots of different questions but our challenge was to find the 'perfect' question each time to eliminate half the people on each turn.

Next, we created a chart or 'binary tree' to show which questions led to each person.

Then, we used a branching database to find the names of each person. We could only answer Yes or No to each of the questions.

 

 

 

Is the person male? NO

Is she wearing a headscarf? NO

Is she wearing white socks? NO

Is she wearing a sweater? YES

It is MOLLY

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Is the person male? YES

Does he have ginger hair? YES

Is he wearing shorts? YES

It is JASPER

Finally, we searched a database to answer more complex questions.

 

How many children are wearing a tie?
Which children have blonde hair?
How many blonde children are wearing glasses?
Which children are wearing a tie & blazer?
