Let's be discrete about the types of data. A short video provides the definitions of discrete and continuous data. After providing the definitions, the resource takes different types of data and sorts them based on type and provides an explanation of why they fall into each category. Pupils use the definitions and examples to classify data as discrete or continuous in the Types of Data worksheet.
