This is a full lesson on data collection. It involves a practical element where students collect discrete and continuous information from their classmates, after measuring lengths and widths of themselves. The students then practise recording discrete data in tables. The inequality signs are then revised and an example of recording continuous data into a frequency table is modeled. The students then record their continuous data into frequency tables before finally completing a 'spot the mistake' review to finish.
This is lesson teaches data collection methods, explores reliability and accuracy of different data collection and sampling methods. It is part of a bundled scheme of work to deliver fieldwork for Edexcel Geography B's 2016 GCSE specification Topic 6 Geographical Investigations: Investigating Dynamic Urban Areas. It has been successfully tested and delivered on mixed ability y10 student classes including the fieldtrip itself . The series includes 9 lessons which supports students (and teachers!) to prepare for; deliver and write-up urban fieldwork including differentiated lessons, powerpoints, activities and resources; a fieldwork workbook for students; an online student write-up booklet; spreadsheets to help analyse data and mark schemes. The investigation is based in Birmingham but could easily be adapted to other cities. NB - individual students' access to PCs + internet most lessons is assumed.
This is a crossword with data vocabulary. It would be useful as
- lesson starter
- settling activity
- cover work
- end of term activity
- extension task
- literacy support for EAL or SEND students
- literacy across the curriculum
- assessment for learning or afl task
Contains printable pdf and answers.
The learning objective is to introduce or revise data vocabulary in a fun and relaxing way.
This activity could be used at the start of a topic to introduce key vocabulary by having students fill out as much as they can independently and then check their answers and fill in the gaps using the answer sheet provided. Once students have all the answers they can save the crossword to refer to during the course as a useful list of vocab and definitions. This would help students with dyslexia to spell the vocab correctly and would enable all students with high language needs to refer back to the definitions as required to allow them to access later lessons.
This activity could also be used for revision where students might complete several crosswords in a lesson or for homework. They would work at their own pace to identify areas where they need focus their revision.
A unit of work to introduce types of data and to discuss different ways of collecting data.
The zip file contains:
A PowerPoint (pptx) slide on two-way tables used as a lesson starter.
A PowerPoint (pptx) presentation that asks questions about types of data (primary/secondary, qualitative/quantitative) and data collection techniques including types of sampling. It also briefly looks at how different types of data can be represented in bar charts, frequency diagrams and histograms.
A worksheet (pdf/docx) on collecting data where students match types of data to keywords such as primary, secondary, qualitative, quantitative, discrete and continuous.
A Match-up activity (pdf/docx) on sampling methods, where students match the method with its description and some advantages and disadvantages of the technique. Includes an answer sheet.
A worksheet (pdf/docx) about surveys showing 7 different survey questions. Students are asked for one criticism of each question and to rewrite it in a more suitable form.
A worksheet (pdf/docx) about representing data containing 5 questions. Each question has a table containing data and students are asked to draw 2 bar charts, a pie chart, a line graph and a scatter graph. This is a good revision exercise to remind students of the variety of graphs they already know how to draw.
This resource includes a wide of data collection sheets which could be used with KS3 to A Level including beach profile, cost of coastal defences, evaluation of the effectiveness of defences, field sketching, groyne height measurements, wave information. They can easily be adapted to any location you are studying and incorporated into your own fieldwork booklet.
Secondary data collection and analysis is one of the lecture which is cowered during marketing research module.
The agenda for this lecture is:
•Define the nature and scope of secondary data and distinguish secondary data from primary data;
•Analyze the advantages and disadvantages of secondary data and their uses in the various steps of the marketing research process;
•Describe in detail the different sources of secondary data, focusing upon external sources in the form of published materials and syndicated services;
•Explain the need to use multiple sources of secondary data;
•Understand the challenges of using secondary data in international marketing research;
•Describe the nature and purpose of researchers utilizing internal sources of secondary data;
•Understand how web analytics can capture and model customer data and thus support marketing.
In the attached file, you will find:
• 1 Secondary data collection and analysis lecture power point presentation
• 1 Tutorial Plan with several activities
This lecture is covered by bachelor students. Once purchased please leave comment.
Brilliant animated tools. Contains A Tool for sorting out Data Type (Continuous or Discrete Data). Can be a great mini white board revision activity.
Identifying a Good Question
Frequency Table - Data Collection.
Meaning of BIAS.
Great for quick fire revision or whole lesson.
Math, Maths or Mathematics
I used this activity for Year 3 but it's suitable for other year groups.
The front cover (A4 to stick on the front of the A3 booklet) explains that they have been put in charge of a fruit factory and that they need to find out which fruit is the most popular for them to be successful.
There are 2 A3 sheets that I stuck together once printed to form a booklet.
The first A3 sheet is set up to allow children to create a tally chart. They then put the data into a table and a pictogram.
The second sheet allows children to create a bar chart. There are then generic questions about their data and room for them to create their own questions.
I've also included a model for input based on eye colour.
The pages have a fruit background - great for display or journal work.
This task allows students to collect and analyse their own data.
- Collect both categorical and numerical data from secondary sources.
- Construct back to back stem-and-leaf plots and histograms.
- Determine quartiles and interquartile range (IQR).
- Explain the terms: Symmetrical, skewed and bi-modal.

This is a fun enrichment/practice activity for students to show their graphing skills & practice finding percentages! Students will poll their classmates to collect data and graph their results (they love that!.
Data collecting includes:
Classmate's favorite candy (Circle Graph)
Classmate's favorite season (Bar Graph)
"You Pick" Favorite (Pictograph)
Height vs. Shoe Size Scatterplot
Students must also calculate the percentages of the class votes, which is GREAT statistical practice!
