    Does anyone know if we can use research of the Bradshaw model and Strahel Stream Order Classification system as secondary data or does it need to be researching anticedant conditions/ previous research results for the same place?

    For one of the questions it says "draw an annotated sketch map showing the characteristics of your study area"

    Does anyone have any idea what I draw here? If anyone has a picture or something please can you share it?

    Thanks!

    I find that looking at examiners notes really help. Its useful to see where people dropped marks etc, and they comment on what kind of techniques you need to use to access Level 2 answers etc.

    can cross sectional diagrams of the river be used when talking about how you analysed your data and why etc? my teacher said they can but I thought that they were more for data presentation and most people talk about spearman's rank etc?

    I don't know about the second one, but the Bradshaw Model is what it is - a Model.

    A past question was "Outline the aim and describe the theory, idea, or concept from which your aim was derived", and that's the situation in which the Bradshaw Model (and probably the other one, idk what it is) would be used.

    For secondary data, you'd need data from another river (width, depth etc.) to show whether or not that also supports your findings.

    Hope this helps

    At our school we did two investigations, one for rivers and one for population... the population one has better info for secondary data (census), but I'd still rather use my rivers one xD

    My school gave us a booklet on graphical skills.

    It says :
    The method for drawing proportional circle or semi-circles is:
    1) Calculate the square root of the values
    2) Multiply each square root by a constant: this gives you the radius of each circle.
    3) Draw the circles and mark the scale on the map.
    The circles can be divided.

    Good Luck to everyone tomorrow

    I was wondering if anyone could help me, I'm struggling on a question to do with the strengths and limitations of the Spearman's rank co-efficient test. If anyone can help me that would be great but I know we're all busy revising

    strengths: Shows correlation. Also shows if correlation is statistically significant (therefore not due to chance)
    Weaknesses: Needs a lot of data (mine didn't really have enough). There are more but I can't remember any * please can someone add more*
    hope this helps and good luck 🍀

    - enables us to see a correlation with very high accuracy that a scatter graph cannot do
    - takes up to 30 data sets so was appropriate for our study
    - takes into account all data

    - time consuming when could just plot points on a scatter graph and draw line of best fit
    - takes into account anomalies which can corrupt results whereas scatter graph's line of best fit would ignore anomalies
