Programme Of Study For Key Stage 3 Mathematics

These are the Transum resources related to the statement: "Pupils should be taught to describe simple mathematical relationships between two variables (bivariate data) in observational and experimental contexts and illustrate using scatter graphs."

Here are some specific activities, investigations or visual aids we have picked out. Click anywhere in the grey area to access the resource.

- Cartoon Scatter Graph Place the cartoon characters on the scatter graph according to their height and age.
- Correlation Arrange the given statements in groups to show the type of correlation they have.
- Human Scatter Graphs Pupils move to positions in the room according to their data relative to the walls as axes.
- Plotting Scatter Graphs Plot scatter graphs from data representing a number of different everyday situations.

Here is an exam-style questions on this statement:

- Data Handling See also the topics called Statistics and Averages. The English National Curriculum states that at level 6 "Pupils collect and record continuous data, choosing appropriate equal class intervals over a sensible range to create frequency tables. They construct and interpret frequency diagrams. They construct pie charts. They draw conclusions from scatter diagrams, and have a basic understanding of correlation. When dealing with a combination of two experiments, they identify all the outcomes. When solving problems, they use their knowledge that the total probability of all the mutually exclusive outcomes of an experiment is 1."
- Live Data One of the big differences between Maths from a textbook and Maths from the web is the possibility of using live data. This possibility gives problem solving real context and allows investigating statistical connections to be far more meaningful.
