Get to grips with data on Gapminder

Gapminder World is a website that can be used to display sets of data, from life expectancy and literacy rates to the quality of a nation's teeth. It can help to give pupils a better feel for the world around them, and improve their knowledge of statistics. Mr Barton Maths has produced short videos, available on TES Resources, to showcase some of the more interesting relationships on Gapminder World and provide ideas on how the site can be used in lessons.
