**Data Collection:**- Data collection is about gathering information or counting different things.
- For example, count how many green balls and red balls you have.

**Arranging Data:**- Once you have collected data, you can arrange it in order.
- For example, you can put the data in a list, from smallest to largest, or from largest to smallest.

**Comparing Data:**- Look at the data you collected and compare it.
- For example, if you have counted green and red balls, you can say:
- “Green balls are more than red balls” or
- “Red balls are less than green balls.”

**Sorting Data into Groups:**- You can sort data into groups.
- For example, if you counted boys and girls in your class, you can sort them into groups:
- Group of boys and group of girls.

**Solving Real-Life Problems on Data Collection:**- You can use data collection to solve real-life problems.
- For example, if you are planning a party, you might count how many plates, cups, and napkins you need.
- Another example is counting how many apples and oranges you have to know which one you have more of.

**Examples:**

**Example 1:**Collect data on the number of green and red balls in a box.- If there are 8 green balls and 5 red balls, we can say:
- “Green balls are more than red balls.”

- If there are 8 green balls and 5 red balls, we can say:
**Example 2:**Count the number of boys and girls in your class.- If there are 12 boys and 15 girls, you can sort them into groups and say:
- “There are more girls than boys in the class.”

- If there are 12 boys and 15 girls, you can sort them into groups and say:
**Example 3:**Count how many apples and oranges you have in the kitchen.- If you have 10 apples and 6 oranges, you can say:
- “I have more apples than oranges.”

- If you have 10 apples and 6 oranges, you can say:

By collecting data, arranging it, and comparing different categories, pupils can better understand the concept and use it to solve real-life problems.

### Numbers from 1 to 600:

**Identify Numbers from 1-300 and 301-600:**- Recognize numbers from 1 to 300, then from 301 to 600.

**Order Numbers from 1 to 500:**- Arrange numbers from 1 to 500 in order, starting from the smallest to the largest.

**Count Numbers 1-600:**- Practice counting numbers from 1 to 600.

**Skip Count in 2s, 3s, 5s, and 10s:**- Count by twos: 2, 4, 6, 8, and so on.
- Count by threes: 3, 6, 9, 12, and so on.
- Count by fives: 5, 10, 15, 20, and so on.
- Count by tens: 10, 20, 30, 40, and so on.

### Writing Numbers:

**Write Numbers 301-600 in Numerals and Words:**- Practice writing numbers from 301 to 600 in numerals (301, 302, etc.).
- Also write them in words (three hundred and one, three hundred and two, etc.).

### Examples:

**Example 1:**Data Collection and Comparison:- You count 7 green balls and 4 red balls.
- You say, “Green balls are more than red balls.”

**Example 2:**Sorting Data into Groups:- In the class, there are 10 boys and 15 girls.
- Group the students into a group of boys and a group of girls.

**Example 3:**Counting Numbers and Skip Counting:- Count from 1 to 20 by twos: 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20.
- Count from 1 to 30 by threes: 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, 21, 24, 27, 30.

By collecting and arranging data, comparing data, and ordering numbers, pupils can improve their mathematical understanding and apply it in real-life situations.
