aim - achievement in maths - supported by the GE Foundation


This document details a case study which looked at combining Mathematics with ‘real-life’ NHS statistics.  It comprises the following: 

  • Aims and objectives
  • An overview of the project
  • The materials developed for the project.

The project takes between four and six hours of curriculum time and culminates in a poster presentation (and possibly a competition) of pupils’ work

The project involved the use of a guest speaker, Dr Andrea Tasker, from Durham Primary Care Trust as the main stimuli. Dr Tasker is a Data Analyst for the NHS. Similar information could be gathered from internet resources and research into the work of a Data Analyst.  However, having a real person to present information to students was a clear benefit.

I like this lesson sequence and would like to use it in 08-9 with some students. I haven't been able to find the materials developed for the project however. Please help.
