This session will enable participants to explore Handling Data and Information (HD) as a process of gathering, recording and presenting information (graphs or charts) that will be helpful for learners. The session will go through ways of collecting data using a planned methodology, recording data with precision and accuracy, analysing data to draw conclusions and sharing data. The teaching implications of these aspects will be explored further in this part of the course as well how to best prepare learners for HD-type questions in the Functional Skills exams.
By the end of this session, participants will be able to:
- Consider some common errors and misconceptions with data handling and how data can be used to mislead
- Explore and evaluate a range of data handling activities
- Relate maths activities and approaches to own context, identifying opportunities and possible adaptations.
