Misleading claims in the media: Junior focus

Lisa Mulvey & Hannah Tomlinson (Diocesan School for Girls).

This workshop covered what Lisa and Hannah have been doing in the junior programme (Year 7) for the statistical literacy unit. Their student projects focused on misleading claims in the media, tying in and aiming to cover key ideas later developed in the 3.12 standard.

They asked students to apply their understanding of the statistical enquiry cycle (PPDAC), graphical displays and statistics to create their own misleading article in the form of a presentation/news video/newspaper Students’ presentations were assessed on their interpretation and discussion conveying how their statistics, d, and collection methods are data is misleading to the public.
