OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Bivariate Data 2 - Spearman's Rank Correlation

OCR MEI Statistics 2 : Bivariate Data 2 - Spearman's Rank Correlation

The starter (Prove It) task asks students to practise skills from the previous session on using the PMCC (Pearsons's) correlation, before introducing the Spearman's rank correlation coefficient: providing an explanation of the method, assumptions, difference from Pearson's and a worked example. The starter task and follow-on exercises are included (all are OCR MEI past paper questions).

Exit Ticket - Pearson's Product Moment

Exit Ticket - Pearson's Product Moment

I give this to the students (printed in A4 or A5 depending on how much room they need) at the end of the lesson to assess an overview of the lesson. I mark it as soon as I can (ha) and it allows me to spot any misconceptions. The last question is a challenge one to push the most able students.

Descriptive Statistics / Representing Data Topic Mat

Descriptive Statistics / Representing Data Topic Mat

Structured worksheet to help pupils take key notes and for the topics involving Interpreting Statistics in Year 1 (Scatter Graphs/Corr/Histograms/Box Plots/Measures of Central Tendency/Linear Interpolation etc). There's quite a lot here so I recommend photocopying this one onto A3. Designed for the new A Level Maths (2017+), Edexcel Specification. Calculator instructions taken from Dr Frost's excellent guide to the Casio Calculator 𝑓𝑥−991𝐸𝑋 𝐶𝑙𝑎𝑠𝑠𝑊𝑖𝑧 which can be found here: http://www.drfrostmaths.com/

S3 Spearman's Rank and Correlation Topic Mat

S3 Spearman's Rank and Correlation Topic Mat

A mat to summarise key concepts from the S3 topic of Correlation including Spearman's Rank (Edexcel). I also include a suggestion for how the mat could be filled out. I usually use it as a plenary – ask the pupils for the key ideas from the lesson and collectively fill in sections over a sequence of lessons. At the end of a topic they have a topic mat from which to revise from. I also photocopy them on different coloured paper so they act as dividers in students’ folders.
