This is a full scheme of work (30 lessons) for Changing Places. I am an examiner for AQA and have been successfully teaching at A level for many years. My resources are intended to have longevity and are easy to follow so that they can be used by any member of staff. The SOW is fully resourced and every lesson has a sheet which goes with it. Every three lessons, there is a homework sheet. Most of the resource materials are in the powerpoints, but there is also reference to the Oxford text book. I have used David Redfern's text book for some of the homework tasks (I photocopied the chapter to give to students.) I have already used this SOW in full last year (we taught AS) and it was very successful. Students really engaged with the topic and almost all achieved their target grades in the exam.

Mann Whitney U Test Lesson - Geography A Level

Mann Whitney U Test Lesson - Geography A Level

This is a double lesson with step by step activities to help pupils learn how to use the Mann Whitney U Test. It begins with basic examples to build confidence and also teaches them the theory behind when and where to use it. I created this resource after struggling to find accessible examples in any text books. My students have now been able to apply this test to their data for their independent investigation.

I recommend completing the tasks yourself before teaching it, as that has helped me improve my ability to help students in the classroom with the statistical aspects of the course.
