A spreadsheet designed to calculate and predict the overall grades of BTEC students according to the value of pass, merit and distinction in the varying units
I created this as my students very often ask me about the liklihood of them achieving merit/distinction overall after recieving individual unit grades, and found this easy to illustrate the values of each unit and the impact of them on the overall grade
This was designed with Business Studies BTEC Level 3 in mind but can be edited to other subjects using the point values on given specifications on the Pearson website
Students have a short period to guess the logo behind the bricks (either write down in silence or compete for the first answer). Answers at the end of the powerpoint. I have used this to introduce promotion in marketing and the idea of how aware students are of logos/slogans etc, but could be used for any subject as a starter.
A lesson on the EU, including a starter activity using questions for the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgnXwrsMBUs (link on ppt), a powerpoint, a true or false activity and a game which asks the students to guess the country with clues.
