This unit tackles the basics of handling data; well-illustrated and with an emphasis on clarity and deepening understanding, this unit provides an excellent basis for work on statistics, which is continued in Unit 21. The unit starts by considering types of data, methods of collection and display. Continuous data is met, grouped using appropriate notation and used to construct statistical diagrams. Mean, mode, median and range are found and interpreted from data and estimated from grouped data. Consideration is given to which type of measure is more useful in different circumstances. The unit ends by considering how to compare populations using a range of statistical charts, graphs, diagrams and measures.

What people say...
The worksheets are well written and the students seemed comfortable with the format. Some interesting questions too, which fit well with the new GCSE course.

Students need to think and learn to reason so probing questions are a feature of every task in every lesson.
