Channel Programing

Mathematics Project

The viewing habits of the community are very important to television providers and
advertisers. The number of households who tune in to a channel for at a particular time or show
are known as
TV ratings
.

These ratings determine whether changes are made to
the program
line up and the prices of different advertisement slots. In this project you will investigate
how

the national TV ratings align with those of students at this school for a given channel

People claim that teenagers

watch
more TV

than any other a
ge group.
You will need to
investigate this claim using an

Australian
Government’s

statistics to
determine

w
he
ther th
is
claim is

true or not.

The class’s final reports and data visualizations will be uploaded to schools website for your
fellow students and

local community to view.


Task
s
:

Form a task force with three to five members
.

Each group will be assigned one of the Free TV (FTV) channels to investigate and three (3) days
of the week.

You will have
three

lessons to complete these tasks.


Task 1

teenagers watch the most TV?

Australia (link below), the Federal Government body for the Australian screen
production industry. Use the research they did on ‘Time spent viewing free
