An introduction to Standard Deviation with an example, worksheet and an interpretation exercise. This has been made with the aim to prepare students to be able to calculate and interpret Standard Deviation for their coursework.
We used these as homework for Year 11 covering a half term. New topic Masters aim to get higher paper pupils familiar with some of the new topics and new style of questioning on the new GCSE. Higher/Foundation Masters are aimed at all students to become more confident in some of the cross over topics. Foundation Masters aimed at foundation paper pupils to gain more confidence in number work and money problems. I found that it worked best printed on one A4 sheet for students to stick at the back of their books and leave a page for their workings. The tracker is useful for pupils and teachers to track progress. Created for students sitting AQA specification in 2017.
This lesson includes a data handling language starter (2 types included with solutions), looking at strand 1 of the coursework in more detail and going through each sampling method in detail. It is not the most exciting lesson to teach but it provides the students with most of the terms needed to be used in Strand 1 and 2 of the coursework. I found the sampling method sheet particularly useful using our school as an example and discussing the strengths and weaknesses of each.

Similar Idea to my old revision masters. Perfect for low stakes quizzes throughout revision.
I’ve been really happy with how my classes have responded to these and there has been a great buy in for trying to move on to the next Better than… and to level up on each sheet.
I have found that level one acts as a nice skills check and then students are able to have a better go at level 2.
