Use Devon’s ‘rubbish’ data as part of maths teaching!
The downloadable spreadsheet below includes data from each Devon district (East Devon, Exeter, Mid Devon, North Devon, South Hams, Teignbridge, Torridge, West Devon and the Unitary Authorities of Plymouth (up until 2013-14) and Torbay) showing what materials are currently recycled, and how the local recycling rate has changed in the last ten years. The data can be used by pupils in a variety of ways, such as creating pie and line charts.
Click on the table to open the excel spreadsheet.
Note the different districts are on separate tabs at the bottom of the spreadsheet.
