Thank you for this post... our maths department need to prepare a resource to use for the new style GCSE & present at tonight's meeting. It has been suggested that we start by looking here - what a compliment to you that a whole department are using your blog!

ReplyDeleteThat's fab - thank you! Great idea for a department meeting too.

DeleteHi, thank you for these resources they have been amazing for putting our SOL together and providing guidance to the department. Do you have any clarification on what is meant by "vertical line charts" in statistics point 2? Is this just a line graph?

ReplyDeleteThanks! I'm glad it's useful. I believe a 'vertical line chart' is just a bar chart with lines instead of full bars (ie height of each vertical line represents frequency). So different to a line graph, which is a time series graph (ie plot points and join with straight lines).

DeleteThank you so much for sharing these resources, they have undoubtedly saved us a lot of time, and I am extremely grateful.

ReplyDeleteI'm really glad it's helpful. Thanks!
