Quantitative skills: Spearman's Rank and Chi Squared

Quantitative skills: Spearman's Rank and Chi Squared

This lesson is designed to meet requirements of the Geography AQA A-Level specification on quantitative and qualitative skills. As per my usual format this lesson consists of; - Starter activity to get them thinking about prior knowledge and using this to link to this lessons learning (the learning linked to this is found on slides 12-16 as I set this as for students to work on in study time/homework). - Learning objectives and success criteria that are clearly linked to the specification. - New information on Spearman's rank and chi squared with examples designed to work through as a class or in teams, with supporting worksheet at the very end of the PPT. - Plenary/application task - to consolidate learning from the lesson. - Further reading with hyperlinked websites. - Further study - hyperlink and consolidating exam style question on fieldwork techniques that would be used in coastal areas.

S3 Goodness of Fit and Contingency Tables Topic Mat

S3 Goodness of Fit and Contingency Tables Topic Mat

A mat to summarise key concepts from the S3 topic Goodness of Fit and Contingency Tables (Edexcel). This one is quite big so I put it onto A3 paper! I also include a suggestion for how the mat could be filled out. I usually use it as a plenary – ask the pupils for the key ideas from the lesson and collectively fill in sections over a sequence of lessons. At the end of a topic they have a topic mat from which to revise from. I also photocopy them on different coloured paper so they act as dividers in students’ folders.

A Level Biology- Stats

A collection of resources I have picked up and adapted along the way when teaching statistic elements of A Level Biology. These resources focus on Chi Squared and Students T Test. The stats booklet I refer to is an unedited version from another user which can be found via a TES search.

Hypothesis testing and Chi-squared

Hypothesis testing and Chi-squared

This presentation introduces the students to hypothesis testing using normal distribution. It starts by explaining what a hypothesis test is, the key language used and also covers type 1 and type 2 errors. Also included is a presentation that shows students how to use Chi-squared test to find a goodness of fit. It covers all parts of chi-squared from a basic introduction to very clear examples, including using the standard results tables (don't forget to move them to show the answers underneath). It also goes on to contingency tables including Yates' correction. SMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.
