    No worries! It's just a general statistical rule of thumb/rule, I'm not sure how they arrived at it either hahahahahah

    Ahhh okay, I'm retaking and IQR was in last years, do we need to know the standard deviation equation by heart?
    Nope they give you the equation and a key, just remember 68.2% for 1 SD

    Here is every skills question from Q2 from 2009, this is pretty much all they can ask us, just make sure you know an answer for each one and you're set

    So if a value is within these parameters its no more than one standard deviation?

    I'm resitting this paper as well and really hope it's on population. I got an a last year in this paper but a b overall, but couldn't resit the other unit because it's so big, so this year I'm trying to get full UMS which is not realistic at all!

    How would you answer this: Distinguish between qualitative and quantitative data?

    My fieldwork was based on seeing on bedload size and roundness changes downstream? Thanks

    For analysis of data- can you talk about drawing a cross section of a river and using that to find out the wetted perimeter, cross sectional area and therefore the discharge etc..?

    Thanks

    Quantitative data is numbers e.g. the depth of the river was 0.5m and qualitative is descriptions so the river was turbulent in the upper course and calmer in the lower course

    I hope standard deviation or spearmans rank comes up! Plus I wouldn't mind easy questions on fieldwork please aqa

    Thats presentation of data. For analysis talk about scattergraphs if you drew any (any anomalies and lines of best fit etc) and also standard deviation or spearmans ranks

    You calculate the standard deviation, and then that means that 68.2% of data is within the standard deviation from the mean, a number like 5 means good results and 100 means bad, as in there is a lot of variation around the mean.

    Yes i use bedload for this one too, size being quantitative and roundness being qualitative, wouldn't hurt to put a definition in either.

    Thanks a lot!!
    Also, for scatter graphs, if I didn't have an anomaly, should I just say something along the lines of: "I didn't have an anomaly as all of the points were close to the line of best fit" or should I make one up?

    Just talk about using weather forecasts to say if it was flashy or not and how you should compare to data from other rivers in the area to make sure yours wasn't anomolous
