# Core Maths – EVolution of vehicle sales

Resource produced in collaboration with MEI

Brief overview of session ‘logic’

• Explore the infographic – what can be worked out from this information and what questions does it raise?
• Look at trends in vehicle registrations
• Look at proportions of types of newly registered vehicles over time – why has the percentage of petrol cars being registered increased from 2015 to 2020?
• Do some calculations to show that the number of petrol cars being registered has decreased from 2015 to 2020.
• Reflect upon the implications for misleading representations of data
• Consider the implications of the ban on new petrol and diesel cars by 2030 – what affect will this ban have on the proportions of car types being registered?
• What questions does the increase in electric vehicles raise?

Mathematical opportunities offered

• Interpretation of data, statistics, graphs, infographics in context
• Critiquing graphs
• Calculating percentages
• Exploring proportions of quantities over time
• Making conjectures about future proportions given available data
• Analysing and comparing data in order to develop and present a conclusion.
