Rigging Stats - Sensational Headlines!
This lesson applies pupil's previous of knowlege mean/median/mode/range and explores bias. I used differentiated tasks from which the pupil gathered and organised their data. For the less able, they had the weather section of a broadsheet and tabloid newspaper. For the more able I used a personal profiles task which another user has put on tes which has little cards that detail various things about a group of people (http://www.tes.co.uk/teaching-resource/personal-profiles-Handling-data-6028340/)\n\nScottish CfE - MNU 3-20a\n\nThis could also be used with english/literacy to produce reports.
