  • 1. Year 7 Unit 1 How Active am I?
  • 2. L1 - Introduction This is the first Unit of 2 that you will be completing this year covering the following skills: ●Spreadsheets and Databases ●Control
  • 3. Unit 1 – How Active am I? In this unit you will be asked to work in small groups and record data on how well you can complete certain tasks. These tasks are: ●10m sprint ●Football Throw-in ●Under arm tennis ball throw ●Standing Jump ●Star Jumps
  • 4. Unit 1 – How Active am I? You will then add your groups result to a Spreadsheet and analyse your findings These findings will then be entered into a whole school Database where searches will be undertaken to determine how well everyone has done You will then end up with a report on how well you personally have done during this unit
  • 5. Data Collection Starter ●Get into your groups of no more than 4- 5. These are the groups you will be working in for this unit ●In your groups, think about what you need to consider when designing an effective Data Collection Form
  • 6. Data Collection A Data Collection Form is a sheet on which data is recorded, usually during an experiment or physical exercise When designing a form, the data collected can usually be split into 2 categories: ●General or Background Data ●Recorded Data
  • 7. Data Collection Task: ●In your groups, using the paper provided, thought shower all of the General Data that you will need to collect ●It is key when designing a form that you only ask ‘relevant’ questions
  • 8. Data Collection Task: ●On the computers, individually create your own data collection form to record your results, including the General Data and Recorded Data that you need ○10m sprint ○Football Throw-in ○Under arm tennis ball throw ○Standing Jump ○Star Jumps
  • 9. Data Collection Plenary: ●Print out your finished Data Collection Form and place in your folder ●Fill in the details on your new Homestudy booklet ●Think about where Data Collection Forms might be used in the world around us
  • 10. Data Collection Homework: ●Information in Society - Complete task 1 of your Homestudy booklet ●All pupils - Bring in equipment for your group that you might need for next lesson such as: ○Tape measure ○Stopwatches ○Tennis Ball ○Football
  • 11. L2 - Data Collection Collect your Data Collection Form that you created last lesson from your folder If you were away last lesson, collect a spare one from your teacher
  • 12. L3 – What is a Spreadsheet? ●A spreadsheet arranges data into a relevant order so that the information can be used to find answers to certain questions
  • 13. What is a spreadsheet? Each cell has a unique cell reference e.g. B17 Text labels Text labels Columns (letters)Rows (numbers) Numeric data Column letter B Row number 17 A worksheet
  • 14. What is a Spreadsheet? Formula Start with = then create the formula When you press Enter, the formula will automatically be calculated. What do you think the answer will be? Formulae can also be viewed and edited here in the formula bar.
  • 15. What is a Spreadsheet? By dragging the fill handle, you can copy and paste the formula into other cells See the fill handle (black square in bottom right of cell) What formula should have been generated in cell D13? The data can be sorted in alphabetical or numerical order – using the AZ icons The data can be displayed on a chart, using the Chart Wizard icon =B13+C13
  • 16. L4/6 – Developing a Spreadsheet Some examples of formulas you may want to use (remember to change the cell references!) =SUM(A1:A5) =AVERAGE(A1:A5) =MAX(A1:A5) =MIN(A1:A5)
  • 17. L7 – Testing a Hypothesis A hypothesis is… …a guess …an estimate …a prediction …an assumption
  • 18. Testing a Hypothesis Task: ●Make a suitable hypothesis from the data you have collected e.g. “I think that as John is the best at the sprint, he will also be the best at both throwing events because…” ●Write your Hypothesis in a suitable document ●Provide statistics and a suitable representation of your data to help to prove your findings ●Write an appropriate conclusion to your Hypothesis explaining if you were correct or not and why
  • 19. L8 – Intro to Databases Starter: As a class, organise yourselves in a line around the room in: Alphabetical order by surname Ext: And then by date of birth
  • 20. Intro to Databases Plenary: Discuss in small groups and then feedback to the class: ●What is a database? ●What is a database used for? ●What are the advantages of using a database? ●What skills have you learnt today? Ext: Who may use databases in the ‘real world’?
  • 21. L9/11 – Database Creation and Importing of Data Starter: ●The teacher will split the group in half. One half of you will think about the advantages of electronic databases over paper based and the other half will do the opposite ●Get into pairs and discuss your thoughts ●Be prepared to feedback to the class
  • 22. L12/14 – Searching and Reporting Starter: ●Feed back the ‘end’ of the following statement cards to the rest of the class ●A database is….. ●A database is used to ….. ●The advantages of using a database are…. ●Sorting data means …… ●A field is ………… ●A record is………..
  • 23. Searching ●Our database contains a lot of information ●We need to be able to search the database in order to solve certain problems ●We call the process of searching a database a query
  • 24. How to query a database ●We can find all records that are the same as something else. ●E.g. Search for everyone with the name John would be entered as: =“John” ●The “” means that you are searching for that exact word. ●If the data type was a yes or no tick-box the answer would just be =Yes. Can you think why?
  • 25. How to query a database ●We can find all records that are greater or less than something else. ●E.g. Search for everyone who threw further than 20m would be entered as: >20 ●This uses the > (greater) or < (less than) symbols you will have learnt in maths!!
  • 26. How to query a database ●We can find all records that are between certain values. ●E.g. Search for everyone who is jumped between 1.2 and 1.5 metres : Between 1.2 And 1.5
  • 27. Querying and Reporting a Database Task: ●Using these techniques and the help sheet, perform at least 2 searches on your database ●Remember to screenshot your searches as part of your evidence ●Create suitable reports for your queries ●Remember to think about SoAP
  • 28. L15/16 - Review In your completed folder you must have: User Needs Data Collection Form Spreadsheet Sketches Spreadsheet with Annotations Charts and any Spreadsheet Analysis Hypothesis evidence Database User Needs Database Planning Database Annotation Query Annotation Completed Database Reports Test Plan Review All Homestudy tasks stapled together separately
  • 29. Review Task: ●Using the Review Help Sheet write a suitable review for your project ●You should try and be as descriptive as possible ●Try to say why you have done things rather than how you have done them
  • 30. 3. Action 1. What’s the problem? 2. Plan and design 5. Modify 4. Evaluate Systems Life Cycle
  • 31. How Active am I? - Level 6/7 Analysis ● Outline of user needs ● Who is the audience? ● What is the purpose? ○ How Active am I? ○ Activities ■ List of ■ Reasons why these are useful ○ What do you hope to achieve by doing this? ● Other user needs ○ To store and record data on group fitness ○ To analyse this work from a personal, class and year group perspective
  • 32. 1. What’s the problem? ●Read any information about the problem ●How will you solve the problem? ●Decide what you need to do ●Spider Diagrams ●Discussion
  • 33. 2. Plan and Design ●Create an action plan: what will happen when? ●Create a design of your project: what will it look like? ●Get it checked! ●Sketches ●Tables
  • 34. 3. Action ●GET ON WITH IT!! ●Use your action plan and design to remind you what should be done and when
  • 35. 4. Evaluation ●Self evaluation ●Peer evaluation ●Questionnaires ●Paired discussion
  • 36. 5. Modify ●What changes should I make? ●Why? ●Make them!!
