Statistics 1 (Edexcel) Revision

Statistics 1 (Edexcel) Revision

Here is my power point trying to structure questions for S1 from past papers. I have split the paper into 5 sections and tried to group questions together. All solutions are given at a click. For use by giving to pupils and leaving them to it, or working through topics as a class. Every question from 2006-present. Also works extremely well on iPads.

Standard Deviation

Standard Deviation

A simple but very clever way to introduce standard deviation. Students thoroughly understand the purpose and how to use standard deviation being taught with this resource. Pair it with a few extra questions from a textbook to make a full lesson.

Statistics: (S1) Finding the Standard Deviation and Variance

Statistics: (S1) Finding the Standard Deviation and Variance

This is a whole lesson to teach the basics of what the standard deviation is and how to calculate it. It comes with a starter, key words, a link to a video, some examples, some key questions and plenary. This is suitable for both S1 at A-Level or KS5, but also excellent for those studying Statistics GCSE. This does NOT go into areas like the normal distribution and some other applications of finding the standard deviation, this is just the first lesson on basically learning what it is and how to find it. It is a good PowerPoint lesson for those doing GCSE Statistics or A-Level Statistics. I have also included a basic excel calculator thing I created to help me find answers quickly and this also could be something to do with the pupils as a lesson?!NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources, and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Averages and Standard Deviation

Averages and Standard Deviation

A 12 page presentation that reminds learners about Mean, Median, Mode and range including mean from a frequency table. It also introduces standard deviation and variance and then leads on to linear scaling. The presentation also comes complete with questions and answers.The presentation can be used by A level students or higher GCSE studentsSMART Notebook Express presentations can be used for free by using SMART online or by downloading SMART software, also free, I use it because it allows a more interactive presentation than a powerpoint. Just search 'SMART Notebook Express' and try it with my free SMART resource.

Statistics: (S1) Interpolation

Statistics: (S1) Interpolation

This is a whole lesson on interpolation. It is not the most extensive PowerPoint I have ever produced, but it does have a starter activity, that links into why use interpolation and what it is for and then a simple, but clear example of how to use interpolation to work out the median. A further activity linking back understanding to the starter and a couple of key question to check understanding. For further practice I have been using past exam questions on this topic and one has been included in the PowerPoint.NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Statistics: (S1) Regression Lines and CODING

Statistics: (S1) Regression Lines and CODING

This presentation contains a whole lesson! Specifically this lesson is for teaching ... what a regression line is, to understand its links to real life situations (excellent clear teaching slides and examples) and calculating a regression line for a given set, including using coding. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, from beginning to end, including a starter and plenary, lesson objectives, examples etc... I have found both this PPT to be a very effective way of getting ALL pupils to understand regression lines and be able to calculate them as well as understand coding.

Statistics: Expectation and variance for a binomial distribution PPT

Statistics: Expectation and variance for a binomial distribution PPT

This is a PowerPoint (lesson two) to go with the previous PowerPoint on expectation and variance to build on looking at how to link the variance and expectation for binomial distributions. The PowerPoint mainly looks at building on understanding and why the formula's work and how to use it.

Statistics: (S1) Coding or making the variance or mean easier (+ rule sheet)

Statistics: (S1) Coding or making the variance or mean easier (+ rule sheet)

This is a teaching resource to help pupils understand coding and the basics of linear adjustments/combinations and how to calculate back and forward from the original data to the coded data. It comes with a good starter, a look at re-arranging and then why coding is used and how it is used. Links to past exam questions, however, it does not come with lots of questions as at that point of practice, I use our S1 textbook. Also a rule sheet handout!NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Statistics: (S1) Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (PMCC) + Resources

Statistics: (S1) Product Moment Correlation Coefficient (PMCC) + Resources

This is normally a lesson that I do over one double period (1.5 hours). Recently UPDATED!!I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lessons, from beginning to end. It comes with a starter (quick look back at scatter diagrams) and then onto what the PMCC is finding and why it is important. A look at the different ways to calculate the formula (same as for the variance) with a working example for the pupils to go through. I have also attached a Edexcel spreadsheet to go through the table with the pupils. The PPT does include additional questions, because Ex. 6B in the S1 course companion is excellent on this chapter. If you do however need some questions, I have included as well some past exam questions that you can use instead. I often use this for HWK.

Statistics: (S2) Linear Adjustments, Combinations of random variable, normal / poisson distribution

Statistics: (S2) Linear Adjustments, Combinations of random variable, normal / poisson distribution

This teaching PowerPoint contains 4 whole lessons!Lesson 1: Linear adjustment of random variablesLesson 2: Linear Combinations of random variablesLesson 3: Linear combinations for normal distributionsLesson 4: Linear combinations for Poisson distributions+ Rule sheet HANDOUTThese lessons are very structured, with clear lesson objectives, clear examples and small activities to build understanding of what linear adjustments/combinations do and why the rules are the way they are. The lessons do link to a textbook that I use, however, for copyright reasons I can not publish these exercises, but this is easily substituted for another textbook that you use to accompany your course. I have found these PowerPoints to be very effective in teaching this topic. NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.
