1. Did everyone do a comparative bar chart for the graph question?

and do you lose marks if you do it in pen? I absolutely hate using a pencil unless it's for creative uses.
2. You could have done scatter or bar chart as long as it makes sense and no you can draw in pen it gets scanned so pen or pencil makes no difference

I have to disgree with 0.74 for the spearmans rank it was definately 0.260 the formulae stated for you to do the sum of d squared x 6 over n cubed -n it never stated for you to take the 1 off, and therefore it was not needed. In my case it was 6 * 74.5 / 12 cubed -12.Ben
It was one minus the result you attained, therefore 1-0.260=0.740. Probably just a troll.

4. Thank god, I always got b*ll*ck*d by my teachers for it
5. I agree its the spearmans rank formulae to take it away from 1, however I just do not re call it asking you to that, all be it it would only have lost me one mark, but I usually have good memory. Never mind we will see answers in due course in the summer, thanks fr replies.

You won't loose marks they cant prove it was pen/pencil via photocopy. I also hate pencil it's not very distinctive and everything blends together.

I did a compound bar chart, but I think you'd get the marks. What did you put on your axes?
7. Question 1:
- Densely populated on coast, most near south-eastern coast, clusters towards north, population density decreases landwards.
- Advantage: shows spatial location, geographically located, easy to see etc. Disadvantage: ignores values less/more than 100,000 (inaccurate representation), dots overlap.
- 0.740
- Maranho (or some ****) doesnt fit pattern of data, is the 7th largest something but highest something.
- 99% confident that relationship is linked and significant, reject hypothesis.
- did a scattergraph and labelled points
- talked about india and brazil having youthful populations: strain of resources, population dividend, NIC status?

Question 2:
- Bradshaws model etc.
- Did a sketch map of the area and labelled and annotated.
- Talked about measuring velocity and how it is good.
- Talked about other 3rd variables to investigate and some ****

I did comparative bar chart and I put countries along the bottom with DR and BR per 1000 up the side. I also put a key and a title

Ahh typo I meant compound, where one bar is on top of the other. I did the same as you except I didn't put a title
11. Why would people draw a stacked bar chart (bars on top) because it shows no comparison between the rates.

Yeah it does you can see from the length of each bar respectively the difference, don't come here with sweeping statements like that unless you can back them up

13. ah i see, thank you!
14. You're gonna pick up marks for both type of graphs so long as they're done correctly
15. (Original post by bjmcgeough)
Personally I don't see how you can do a scatter graph for only four points? Also, how did you show which country is which?
I labelled them.

waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay
Not cool dude, not cool.

Mate the paper is out of 50, the UMS is out of 60 though, sorry buddy.

How many marks does that mean u lost?

.
19. Was a line graph ok for the graph question? I had the countries along the x axis and birth/death rate along the y with one line for birth and one for death which were labelled.
20. I don't understand how you can do a scattergraph for only 2 points for each country? I had to be a bar graph (compound/comparative)
