A SmartBoard file with the headings CONTINUOUS and DISCRETE data with lots of examples of different types of data. Can be used in a whole class discussion. Get students to come up to the board and move the example under the correct data type.
These two lessons consists of worked examples on error bounds for discrete or continuous data.
After each lesson there is a worksheet which can be printed for students to answer either in class or as a piece of homework.
The pupils have to tally red, blue, green and yellow cars as they fly past in the presentation.
This has proved a popular resource at both schools I have taught, particularly with lower ability classes

Within this PowerPoint there is group discussion, clear and animated explanation detailing exactly how to create a line graph with associated data.
The PowerPoint goes through all steps, from collecting the data for a line graph, showing how to draw it on A4 graph paper, the names for axis and title for the graph along with drawing the lines.
It is extremely detailed with each point of the learning journey retraceable, simply by using the forwards and backwards arrow keys whilst using the PowerPoint.
There is a learning objective, differentiated success criteria and also a count-down timer showing the children exactly how long they have left to complete their work.
This resource is an activity drawing on real action research using actual raw data as an introduction to quantitative data analysis.
The students work in small groups, focusing on one set of raw data each. They discuss any problems with the data and how they would analyse it and present the results. They then present their findings to the rest of the class.
Extension work could involve students designing their own questionnaire and carrying it out before analysing the data and writing up their work as a small-scale research project.
