For the AQA Level 3 Certificate in Mathematical Studies (Core Maths) Paper 1

I made this as a revision/exam technique activity for the questions where students are asked to comment on whether a statement is justified.

Give the students the table of election data for the Humberside region (tab 1 on the Excel file) Ask them to fill in the column for which party was elected in each constituency, and calculate the total number of votes and percentage turnout (answers are on tab 2)

Give the students the sheet with the four "statements" made about the data (these are fictitious media comments), and ask them to comment on whether or not the statements are justified, using calculations to illustrate their argument. Suggested answers are given.

    Thanks for this. A well structured resource for a topic that doesn't have many resources yet!

      Thanks! I'd be interested to hear if you come up with any good ideas while teaching the course - there don't seem to be many resources out there yet :)
