Class Experience

Students will learn (depending on the graph type):
- Analysing numerical data by identifying anomalies and calculating the mean
- When to use each type of graph and what type of data it is suitable for
- How to label the axis correctly with the independent/ dependent variables
- How to scale the axis to "zoom in" on the data points
- How to draw error bars to show the range in data
- How to draw a line of best fit or trend line
- How to identify and describe trends in data using correct scientific terminology and conventions
I am a qualified UK science teacher with significant experience teaching both in school and more informal settings (summer camps, tutoring, science club, etc). 
Learners will be sent a summary of the key learning points and a few additional practice questions after each class, which they may wish to use for review purposes. However, homework is not compulsory and will not be assessed.
Learners will generally need: - Paper - Graph paper (pdf printout provided) - Pie chart template (pdf printout provided) OR protractor and pair of compasses - Pencil - Ruler - Eraser - Calculator - Coloured pencils
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I integrate assessment for learning activities throughout each class, including questions, group discussions and mini activities. These enable me to continually monitor learners' understanding and adapt my teaching to better support their learning. In each class, students will also complete their own graph or table, which they can show in the class to receive individual feedback and recommendations. Note that there will be no formal summative assessment for this class, and so no grades nor formal written reports will be provided. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
