CSO Facts & Figures Report for 2019 – Lesson Activities
The CSO Facts & Figures Report is a document that summarises statistics to present information to the reader in an interesting and meaningful way. As a result, students do not have access to the raw data used to generate the summary and so there is a limit to the mathematical analysis students can perform. These activities thus act as a guide through the document, with students using questions involving percentages and charts and graphs to gain further meaning from the data, allowing them to interact and have a greater appreciation for the document and the information it presents.
The pack consists of a Question and Solution Pack. The question pack is in both word and pdf formats allowing teachers to amend or add to the questions and similarly the solution pack is delivered as both a powerpoint and pdf.
