GCSE HANDLING DATA COURSEWORK LOOK AT ME
Questions To ask yourself about your coursework (by no means definitive)
Have you said……….
What your project’s about
What your hypotheses are
How you are going to test these hypotheses
How you will pick your data (how many, sampling method )
How you will make it fair
What maths you are going to do AND WHY YOU ARE GOING TO DO IT
What maths you aren’t going to do AND WHY NOT
Any problems you think you may run into, how you are going to solve them (find some!)
Have you included (where appropriate)
Comparative Pie Charts
Product Moment correlation coefficient
Any of these you haven’t included you need to mention why
The Write Up
No graph must be without a comment about what it shows and what it means about your investigation (e.g “bigger IQR on box plot so boys test scores are more spread out”, rather than just “boys have bigger IQR”)
No calculation must be without comment on what it means to your investigation
EVERYTHING related back to your hypotheses
What improvements could you have made?
Are your results significant?
Are your results reliable?
That’s all I can think of for now I might put some more on later
