The Winton Infographic Competition, open to UK schools, has now closed. However, we decided to allow late entries to give teachers time to submit their class/team entries. All entries have to be emailed to us and that can take time to organise.
If you have taken part and have yet to submit your entries please do so via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) as soon as possible. Judging takes place in the next couple of weeks. You can find all the details for entry at CensusAtSchool.org.uk.
The competition provides an ideal opportunity to work with real data in a creative way, requiring the use of ICT tools like Word and Excel to produce interesting data visualisations.
As part of the new Winton Infographic CompetitionKS3 and KS4 students will be expected to produce various graphs to add to their submitted Infographic. So, we thought this would be an ideal time to link to the updated Graph It resource.
Originally part of CensusAtSchool UK the resource has been updated with instructions on how to produce various graphs in Excel. This version forms part of the IASE (International Association for Statistical Education) GovStats resource for teaching Official Statistics.
The resource includes instructions for; Pie Charts, Bar Charts, Histograms, Population Pyramids, Box Plots, Time Series and Scatter Graphs.
If you are looking around for a Key Stage 3 and Key Stage 4 Mathematics and Statistics activity why not take a look at the new Winton Infographic Competition, entries need to be submitted by the 25th of April.
