    Does anyone know how to explain Environmental Quality Survey (EQS)?
    This is what AQA has to say:
    Explain..,Why..,Suggestreasons for...Set out the causes of a phenomenon and/or the factors which influence itsform/nature. This usually requires an understanding of processes. Explanation is ahigher-level skill than description and this is often reflected in its greater markweighting.

    ... Therefore I would say that an Environmental Quality Survey is a measure of the condition of the environment in an area and can be carried out using a [set of condition (has an exact term I can't remember)?] in order to classify different areas. This can then be used to compare the environment in different areas and therefore the social welfare (assess to a clean environment) of different areas...
    I think this is right but I would like someone to confirm/improve it

    I'm still so confused Would you draw on the isolines but that would just show you the velocity but I thought that cross section would be like this.
    I apologise for being confusing.

    Well it depends on what you are trying to show. Both cross sections are perfectly valid, one showing velocity and another showing depth. Yes i would have drawn on isobars but im lazy

    What you think cross sections look like is absolutely correct

    Are we supposed to have been taught how to construct a pie chart??? I saw someone mention a protractor and compasses so we could draw one? I've never been told this...

    My teacher said it's very unlikely we will be made to do pie charts (gosh i hope we don't get a question on them!). But yes you should have a protractor and compass JUST INCASE

    Just remember the formula:

    what you're trying to find/ total x 360 to find out the percentage.

    e.g. let's say there are 30 immigrants coming to the UK from poland and the total number of immigrant coming across from the world into the UK is 150. You do 30/ 150 x 360 = 72 degrees which you would put onto a pie diagram and proceed to do this with the rest.

    Hey, what's the need to square root the values? Surely if you just make a constant such as 0.1 and multiply it all the values theyll be proportional still and you can use that as your radii?
    I just got that from the booklet my teacher gave me. I don't think it'll come up anyways.

    If you can, borrow some from your maths department... Give them your phone or something just to prove you will return the equipment.
