Data representations (Year 10)
This module from the AMSI 'The Improving Mathematics Education in Schools (TIMES) project' is for teachers who wish to consolidate and extend their content knowledge on ways of displaying data, such as scatterplots and using continuous data. There are sections that provide history and context for the topic, as well as exercises and examples of how to present and explain the concepts to students.
