Analysing: Use appropriate mathematical procedures in statistics
You can use these ideas to support problem solving in statistics and help you to focus pupils' learning on the key process of 'using appropriate mathematical procedures'. You can use this information to plan lessons or units of work which support activities such as manipulating and representing data and calculating statistics.
Planning for using appropriate mathematical procedures in statistics
In your planning, you can create opportunities for pupils to:
- use systematic methods for collecting data from primary and secondary sources
- construct tables, graphs and diagrams to present their data in an organised form
- calculate summary statistics
- calculate experimental and theoretical probabilities.
