Year Level: 7Topic: Data representationTime: 10 hours

This sequence uses the context of meal planning to demonstrate a process to solve a problem; in this case, what meal to cook for teenagers with various needs. In decomposing the problem, students collaborate to better understand their audience’s needs, the food options available and to define how the functional requirements of the solution can be met. Key to meeting the functional requirements is collecting data related to suggested meals and organising this as structured data so it can be collected, sorted and visualised in different ways. Students also need to consider one or more of the following constraints when designing their solution: sustainability (economic, environmental, social), technical considerations and usability. Teachers may substitute their own context and follow a similar process described in this sequence.
