Lesson 1 - Answering questions

This lesson will provide pupils with an overview of the unit, building on and recapping learning about data from previous units. Pupils will consider what data can be collected and how it is collected. They will think about data being collected over time. Pupils will also think about questions that can and can’t be answered using available data, and reflect on the importance of collecting the right data to answer questions. Later in the unit, pupils will put into practice the ideas that they have thought about in this lesson.
