## Working with Data

Submitted by Natasha Galliford on Mon, 2017-06-12 11:58

#### Resource type: Worksheet or assignment

This resource uses several tables of data and requires the user to complete calculations based on the data such as mean, median, mode and range as well as percentages and rounding. There is also a task where the learner must create a chart based on a table of data.

Editor’s note
There is something for everyone in this robust resource as it’s split into three sections: weather, Premier League and Glastonbury Festival. With answers and curriculum mapping.

Submitted by John Wood on Wed, 2008-04-09 16:53

#### Level: L1, L2

Temperature and thermometers is a great set of ‘real life’ questions, many based on weather statistics from across the world. Covers reading scales, using two scales to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit, understanding negative temperatures, finding mean average and range, extracting information from tables and bar charts, and plotting data on line or bar charts. Due to the wide variety of skills covered, this makes an ideal end of year revision exercise- as well as neatly covering the temperature elements of the L1/2 curriculum.
