Unit Title: Using Real Data

Learning Objectives Group data recorded to present information to others Organise, represent and interpret data in charts, graphs and diagrams (barchart, pictogram)

Learning Outcomes To be able to group data to convey information to others To be able to draw and interpret charts, diagrams and graphs To interpret frequency diagrams

• Most

Use frequency diagrams and be able to interpret them Construct and interpret simple line graphs Specifying a problem, planning and collecting data

• To draw and interpret simple line graphs • To be able to collect data and decide on a plan of how it will be interpreted


Write a short report of a statistical enquiry and illustrate • To be able to plan a project including what graphs will with appropriate diagrams, graphs and charts using ICT be used and what they will tell you about the data as appropriate. Justify the choice of what is presented.

Starter Lesson 1 Types of data. Discrete, continuous, qualitative, quantitative, primary and secondary

Development Collect data from class Height and foot size of class(alternatively use secondary data, with some practical example) Discuss what would be a useful investigation Frequency table – grouped data Class Hypothesis Calculate averages and range and discuss how to interpret what it says about the data with reference to the hypothesis Range – consistency

Plenary What should we include in our report? [hypothesis, what will be calculate – averages, which graphs, why, conclusions, further investigations. Do the averages and range prove or disprove the hypothesis?

Assessment Q and A Classwork Written report

Lesson 2 Begin writing plan for this project

Lesson 3 Do we still think the graphs in our plan will best represent the data?

Illustration of how to use EXCEL – data put on shared drive. Students use computers to draw graphs – either computer rooms or laptops

What graph looks like the best representation?

Lesson 4 Complete write up of report with a final Do the graphs conclusion prove or disprove the hypothesis? [H/W] Resources
Height and feet size measurers Microsoft Excel – individual computers

What would you do Differently? How could you Extend the investigation?

Homework Write up conclusions from graphs
