lttmaths.com Top Trump cards depicting superheroes - their statistics correlate (e.g: height / weight or fame / salary etc.) and can be used to plot scatter graphs. I have used these by giving each pupil a hero card, then done a human scatter graph. They then created their own hero card (making sure their statistics fit the correlations shown on the graph sheets). They could also be used for calculating averages, sampling techniques..... and playing top trumps! N.B - original spreadsheet from another TES user.

    Interesting, looks great for mainstream, but not really useful for my students with SLD.

      Yes you're right; it's not intended for SLD. Having said that, I've used it successfully with my bottom set year 8 (with some adaptions of course).

    This is a great resource. Thank you for sharing it. It is really enjoyable for the students to use and a novel way of looking at scatter graphs for them. :)

      Thanks - to be honest I probably had just as much (geeky) fun making the data correlate and learning the excel formulas to make it work : D

    Really enjoyed this resource and students liked forming theories about what variable indicated success for a superhero.
    My kids also designed their own trump card with the idea that it would be a valuable card without being ridiculous - in that it wouldn't trump every category.

      Great - I like the direction you took this in. Always interesting to see what pupils come up with as well.
