Statistics: Combining Data Sets (Mean & Standard Deviation)

Statistics: Combining Data Sets (Mean & Standard Deviation)

This is a whole lesson on looking at combining data sets, in particular combining the mean and standard deviation. It comes with a starter, learning objectives, different small activities to assess understanding, lots of examples, and plenary. The strength of this resource (16 slides) is the excellent examples and teaching content. When looking through my files I couldn't find a particularly great worksheet or activity on this, so I have included a mixture of things that I had already, which have some good questions in. I looked through various textbooks I have and the best I saw was the Cambridge one, but again it only had a few really good questions in. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Handling data vocabulary, KS 1 and KS 2, display.

Hi all, Here is my Handling Data vocabulary for you with a range suitable for KS1 and KS2. You can stick them up on your working walls or maths display! I always cut them out and laminate them before use as they'll last a few years. They're completely editable for you to select which ones you want to use. If you like my resources please review and 'follow me' - that way you'll get notified of anything else that I post without having to search for it! Cheers, Emlo

A PowerPoint of activities based on communities and cities/urbanisation. This includes: Pictures of various communities (rural, urban and suburban) that can be used for a warmer quiz introducing the subject of different communities. Smaller versions of each picture (4 x one page) which can be printed out and used for sorting activities (I had 3 teams sort them and make a poster using them to compare characteristics of the 3 different types of community at the start of my unit on communities). A maths lesson on rounding which compares 5 large cities. This was used to raise awareness of the rapid increase in urbanisation across the world. A table for students to organise their rounded figures and fill in information about each city. Pictures of each city - printed and used by the students to complete their table. The students then used their tables to make bar charts comparing the population of the 5 featured cities.
