Data Collection and Averages - functional tasks

[img_assist|nid=5329|title=|desc=|link=popup|align=left|width=100|height=70]A set of differentiated tasks for construction students. I used the E3-L1 task with my Entry to L1 group and then the more challenging task with my L1-L2 students.

The use of measure is aways useful for my students as it is something they need to practise constantly given their vocational areas. The lesson was enjoyed by all, especially the hands-on measuring task prompted lots of fun and discussion. Encourage students to get others to check their measurements and validate their results.

I was happy to use my age to show a change in average, but if you are not comfortable with that, make one up – as long as it shows variation.

The functional task at the end shows students how what they learn in lessons can relate to exam questions.

Editor’s note
Fully mapped to the Functional Maths criteria. Although averages and data collection is the main focus both resources also cover other criteria including: E3-L1 fractions, measures, extracting information from bar charts
