Official Statistics, our Infographic Competition and Excel

As part of the new Winton Infographic Competition KS3 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.

 

WinAtSchool Schools Competition – Ending in April

Now seems like a good time to tell all UK secondary school teachers that the 2015 WinAtSchool Maths and Stats Competition will be closing on the 30th of April.

If you have 8 or more pupils willing to test their mathematical skills and knowledge you should register your school as soon as possible. Find out how WinAtSchool.org.uk.

If time is short get your pupils to take part first, you can always register after the deadline to get your results and see how your school/class have done.

WinAtSchool at the Big Bang Fair

The Big Bang Fair BirminghamWe took our maths and stats quiz to the Big Bang Fair at the NEC in Birmingham at the start of March and then appeared at a handful of the regional events throughout the month.

This included a visit to North and South Wales, Sussex and Somerset.

We would like to thank all of the teachers who attended and all the pupils who took part in either the practice or prize quiz throughout all 5 events.
