Statistics: (S1) Skewness (Pearson's / Quartiles / Standard Deviation) + worksheet

Statistics: (S1) Skewness (Pearson's / Quartiles / Standard Deviation) + worksheet

This is a whole lesson looking at the different aspects of skewness, what it is, how to calculate it and maybe most importantly interpreting the results in terms of the data. The lesson look at how to calculate using Pearson's measure of Skewness, the Quartile Skewness and also how to calculate using the IQR for Outliers. The lesson includes a starter, learning objectives, key words, very clear teaching slides and examples, worksheet with mark scheme and plenary.

IB Math SL TI-Nspire Statistics & Probability Calculator Guide

IB Math SL TI-Nspire Statistics & Probability Calculator Guide

This guide is helpful for students and teachers in International Baccalaureate Math Standard Level. This 6 page document covers three main topics: Statistics, Binomial Distribution, and Normal Distribution. The guide instructs students on what buttons to press and what each of the features will do. From adding spreadsheets, analyzing a set of data, finding the linear regression, using the binomial pdf and cdf features, and using the normal pdf and cdf and inverse Norm features, this guide is a create tool to summarize what the students need to know for the calculator portion of the IB Math SL test. There are a few short examples (with answers provided) for students to test their understanding of the calculator features.

Statistics: Normal Distribution Bundle (4 Lessons) - Perfect for S1 and S2

Statistics: Normal Distribution Bundle (4 Lessons) - Perfect for S1 and S2

This is four excellent lessons. All the lessons are approximately 25 slides and should be enough for a long double A-Level lesson (1hr 40 - 2hours) Lesson 1 - Standard Normal / Introduction Lesson 2 - Non Standard / Standardizing Lesson 3 - Backwards and Problems Lesson 4 - Approximation for Binomial Distribution NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thank you.

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 3 - Backwards and Further Problems (+ worksheets)

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 3 - Backwards and Further Problems (+ worksheets)

This is the third of four lessons on the normal distribution, which builds on the first two lessons. This is your A/A* material, looking at different types of questions and problems. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 21 slides. Specifically this lesson is for teaching about how to work backwards and different questions. It does touch on linear combinations, so I recommend teaching that first (also available from my shop) and looks in detail at little issues/ mistakes that people can make. This is a vital lesson for your top end students and gives less able students more time to practise the normal distribution. I have therefore included two worksheets (exam questions) aimed at different abilities students and then come with accompanying mark schemes. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson and have found this is one of best teaching topics and I have been very successful in getting ALL pupils to understand the normal distribution and feel confident for ALL types of questions that they may have to face.

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 2 - Non / Not Standard (+ Worksheet)

Statistics: (S1) Normal Distribution 2 - Non / Not Standard (+ Worksheet)

This is the second of four lessons on the normal distribution, which builds on the first lesson that introduced the topic by looking at what to do when data is not in the standard normal form. This is an excellent resource, with lots and lots of excellent teaching slides, 21 slides. Specifically this lesson is for teaching what is the normal distribution is, the criteria for using it and how and HOW TO STANDARDISE, and again how to use look up tables to solve problems that are in a standard normal form having standardised. I have also included questions I often used with accompanying mark scheme. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson and have found this is one of best teaching topics and I have been very successful in getting ALL pupils to understand the normal distribution and feel confident for ALL types of questions that they may have to face.

Edexcel S1 Revision clock

Edexcel S1 Revision clock

This is a revision activity for Edexcel S1 based on the ideas shared on Jo Morgan's brilliant website http://www.resourceaholic.com/. This was originally shared here http://justmaths.co.uk/2015/10/18/keeping-time/. This activity could be used to help improve students' timing by giving them 5 minutes for each of the 12 questions, to improve memory, or simply to produce a visual revision resource. Each student should be given an A3 copy of the clock with a set of questions. Answers are provided.

Statistics: (S2) Normal distribution 4 - Approximation for the Binomial Distribution (+ worksheet)

Statistics: (S2) Normal distribution 4 - Approximation for the Binomial Distribution (+ worksheet)

This is the fourth of a series of lessons on the normal distribution. It is applicable for S2 in the UK, but international A-Level has this as a part of the S1 specification. 26 slides. This lesson needs to proceed lessons on the binomial and normal distributions, both available as lesson in my shop. Specifically this lesson is for teaching when to use the normal distribution as an approximation for a binomial distribution. It looks at why we use and looks in a lot of detail at common mistakes pupil's make in order for pupil's to avoid doing it and I have had excellent results on this topic using this resource. 26 slides. I have used the PowerPoint slides to structure the lesson, and includes plenty of examples, superb teaching slides with lots of custom animation, key words, learning objectives, differentiated questions and basic plenary.

Statistics: (S1) Making the Mean and Variance Easier (Coding)

Statistics: (S1) Making the Mean and Variance Easier (Coding)

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!

Statistics: (S2) Linear Adjustments / Combinations  - 4 Lessons + Handout

Statistics: (S2) Linear Adjustments / Combinations - 4 Lessons + Handout

This teaching PowerPoint contains 4 whole lessons! Lesson 1: Linear adjustment of random variables Lesson 2: Linear Combinations of random variables Lesson 3: Linear combinations for normal distributions Lesson 4: Linear combinations for Poisson distributions + Rule sheet HANDOUT These 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.
