Data With No Name
In this resource from CensusAtSchool, a set of data is presented with little background information. Students are invited, via a series of questions, to turn the data into usable, useful information applying both mathematical reasoning and use of statistical methods.
It encourages the use of spreadsheets as a means to further enhance the quality of the work and provides scope for further investigation. Students will be engaged in using frequency tables, grouped data, mean, median, mode and range, and in comparing distributions.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
