|When is it happening||Year 9 Term 3|
|What will students learn||Students will learn about different types of questioning techniques such as precise, open ended and leading questions. Students will understand how data can be collected by using different types of questions such as multiple choice. Students will also learn how to ask short questions which can be answered precisely and get a better response. Students will design their own questionnaire based on a project. Students will collect responses for their questionnaires and enter data using Microsoft Excel. Students will learn to enter, format and sort data. Students will learn to use formulas such as addition, subtraction, AutoSum and average. Students will learn how to create range of charts such as graphs, pie chart and line graph. Students will manipulate data to explain their findings. Students will prepare a report on their findings.|
|Key Knowledge that students should know at the end of 'Topic'||This is the knowledge that students will meet for the first time in this topic||Students can: identify the difference between precise, open ended and leading questions. Based on this knowledge they will practice writing different types of questions and design a questionnaire for their project. Identify steps used to enter data into a spreadsheet. Can explain why different formatting techniques are required to present data. Can explain why addition, subtraction, AutoSum or average formulas are required to sort or manipulate some data. Explain why charts can be useful to present data i.e. graphs, pie charts etc. Be able to manipulate data to explain findings.|
