Welcome to this Mathematics Grade 8 course, module 5 of 5 on Data Handling.
The aim of this course is for it to be taught in a 21st century mindset. The course is actually fun, it uses technology, the internet and general knowledge to better equip a student for real life applications.
This course is intended for absolutely age 12-14 years old whom already has a foundation phase understanding in Mathematics. This course is also suitable for any end of middle-school to start of High School (US) or Grade 7-9 (UK) teachers who want to improve upon classroom teaching methods.
This course is packed with 1.5+ hours of video content encouraging students to answer questions throughout the videos. There are 5 modules in total, this is module 5.
1. Numbers, Operations & Relationships.
2. Patterns, Functions & Algebra.
3. Space and Shape.
5. Data Handling.
The course has been broken into 5 modules to i) allow students to only enroll in what sections they are struggling with, ii) save the parent or student cost as each module is the price of a tutoring lesson and lastly, iii) to encourage students to break goals into bite-sized chunks. There is 16+ hours of video in all five modules.
This course is intended to be a resource to help students throughout the year, it can be completed slowly and referred to throughout your year of study. The course has been broken down into the following sub-sections, each containing their own set of videos:
This video is a nice practical fun example to help a student get used to collecting data and enabling them to do it themselves.
Once we have collected data we need to be able to do something with it, this video is all about organising data into steam leaf diagrams.
Once we have an organised set of data we need to summarise the data, or take out useful information. This video will deal with how to solve the mean of a data set, or the average of a data set.
Once we have an organised set of data we need to summarise the data, or take out useful information. This video will deal with how to solve the median of a data set, or the middle piece of ordered data in a data set.
Once we have an organised set of data we need to summarise the data, or take out useful information. This video will deal with how to solve the mode of a data set, or the piece of data that occurs the most.
Once we have an organised set of data we need to summarise the data, or take out useful information. This video will deal with how to solve the range of a data set, or the difference between the smallest and biggest numbers.
Once we have collected data, organised and summarised it we need to represent it to make it presentable and easy to understand, this video will deal with how to make a Bar and Double Bar Graph.
This video will sent the record straight for what the difference between a bar graph and histogram are, it will show you in detail how to go about making a histogram.
Still learning how to represent data, this video will show you how to create a pie chart.
The last, most important and frequently used data representation method is line graphs, seen every day whether it be stock markets or the temperature. This video will deal in detail with Broken Line Graphs
Probability is an extremely important part of mathematics, this video will give a basic introduction to the terminology used when discussing probablity.
It is important to understand what relative frequency is and why it is so important to understand the difference between probability and relative frequency of an event.
We take some time in this video to go through, in detail, examples in the realm of probability.
