Hypothesis testing for correlation

I’ve recently started teaching statistics and have the pleasure of teaching both Year 1 and Year 2 side by side.

As I was searching around for a homework to set my Year 13 class, I was inspired to go hunting for some correlated data and this worksheet is what I produced.

Please feel free to let me know if you spot any errors in either the worksheet or the solutions.

A change of perspective…

… is sometimes all you need. I made a move to my third school in January, and I haven’t even completed my second year as a qualified teacher yet. The latest move has found me now in a positive and supportive environment. This change has reignited my passion for teaching mathematics, and has finally enabled me to start developing and improving my teaching practice. With this in mind I am now hoping I can make the return to (irregular) blogging and more regular engagement on Twitter.
