Representing Data: choosing the best graph

(9)
Maths Activity suitable for KS3 and KS4. Just because Excel can create a graph, it does not mean it is the right graph to use. This lesson shows students how to choose the right graph for the right situation and exercises for developing those skills. If you are kind then you can let students use the Excel file.

Revision Techniques (Jedi Mind Tricks)

(57)
This little lesson was designed to show students different ways that they could revise for exams. As well as the main lesson it also includes a Diamond 9 which could be used as an extension or follow up. There is also an assembly version, which the link takes you to. I've also included a link to a blank lesson plan, because with the template each plan took about 15 minutes to do and could be useful for teacher trainees.

Factors of Production

This gorgeous introduction to the factors of production shows you in detail how Economics divides Labour, Land, Capital & Enterprise. The video shows the factors of production in a quite nostalgic way, which my students really enjoyed spotting the references to. (If you have a bell or buzzer you can make it even more fun!)

In this exercise two people have to say the same script, but try through body-language to convey different messages. Hilarious and really shows how much people communicate through non-verbal communication.
