Average Year 9 Student

 

LO:  To use statistics in a practical setting.

 

Overview: Students create their own questionnaires and research plans in order to develop an answer to the question “what is the average year nine student?”

 

Suggested approach: Use the introduction PowerPoint to engage the students with the task. The idea is for students to create questionnaires that they can send round the class and measure each other to find out their own statistics and information. In the past we have generally made sure students are at the end of creating questionnaires one day so we can run them through the photocopier for the class to fill in the next day.
