# Using Data

This collection of Level 1 resources from Nuffield Mathematics covers Using data. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in Foundation Level GCSE and Level 1 Functional Mathematics.

They include slide shows to introduce the topics, student sheets and teacher notes, as well as spreadsheets and other resources.

The teachers' notes start with a short overview of the activity, who and what it is designed for, and the necessary resources. The student sheets have background information where needed, and tasks for the students to work and reflect on. Extensions and solutions are included in the teachers' notes.

The collection includes the following resources:

Matching graphs and scenarios  Students match graphs with descriptions of the real situations they represent.

Fractions decimals and percentages  A variety of activities which can be used to give students practice in converting between fractions, decimals and percentages.

Ratios  Worksheet, bingo cards and matching cards to give learners practice in simplifying ratios.

Outdoor Gig  Students use weather data to consider which month would be the best to hold an outdoor gig. Students practise using either a calculator (version A) or a spreadsheet (version B) to calculate mean and range values.

Shorter by helicopter  Students plot graphs of real data to compare the straight-line distances between towns with the distance by road

Currency conversion  An introduction to conversion graphs and direct proportionality in the context of currency conversion, reading and plotting graphs and calculating gradients. One question uses a spreadsheet.

House prices  There are two versions of this activity. Both involve large data sets of house prices showing how they have changed in different locations over long and short periods of time. In Version A, students draw and interpret statistical diagrams and calculate statistical measures by hand. In Version B, students use a spreadsheet to create the statistical diagrams and calculate statistical measures, then interpret them.

Plumber's callout  Students complete data tables, then draw, read and interpret linear graphs where the intercept on the y axis is not zero. Interpretation includes finding where two linear graphs meet. The last part requires a spreadsheet – omit if computers not available.
