Watch a video showing pupils exploring and discussing a sub-task of a data-handling problem. In this video, pupils discuss the pros and cons of eating sweets and fruit at a school disco. This is one of seven videos that exemplify activities within Lesson 1 Episode 1 from the medium-term plan for data handling.

Student 1
Are you less likely to choke on an apple than sweets? Because, like, you’re dancing, and you’ve got an apple in your hand, you might suddenly choke on it. But, then, sweets, you could, like… they’re like… no, but, like sweets would be better.
Student 2
Yeah, because sweets you can eat in two seconds, really.
Student 1
Yeah, and apples you just stand there.
Student 2
You stand there going, ‘whooh!’
Student 1
You’re wasting your time, it takes half an hour.
Student 2
It’s like, people munching away!
Student 3
At discos, you’re supposed to be really hyper and stuff and have, not the kind of fruit energy, you’re supposed to have the, like, sweet energy and be hyper and run around. But, with fruit, it’s just going to give you the energy that, like… it’s boring! Because you’re not going to be fun.
Student 2
‘Wow, it’s a disco! I’ll have an apple, wooh!’
Student 1
Not many people will go to a disco if there’s fruit.
Student 2
Less people will go to a disco if there’s fruit.
Student 1
They’ll still go but they just won’t… they’ll probably, like, just…
Student 3
They won’t make any money.
Student 2
Yeah, they’ll make less money.
Student 3
They’ll buy sweets from the shop and then bring them to the disco, that’s what I do.
Student 2
Yeah, hide them in their bag!
Student 3
That’s what I do.
Student 2
Do you?
Student 3
Yeah…
Student 2
Oh!
