I found the GGB5 thread realy useful, I know we talked about GGB6 in it a little but I thought I'd give it it's own thread.
Hi. Erm what to say... I think my advice is nail your investigation ;
know your aim and two hypotheses
know how you presented data for one hyp (were using kite diagrams)
know how you tested and analysed data for a hyp (were using spearmans rank)
show how it developed your understanding of the topic investied
what do yo uthink is going to come up for the skill?
I'm good with all of the skills except piecharts so knowing my luck they'll come up.
Maybe triangle graphs not sure when they were last on it.
comparison pie charts bug me they can get so confusing, or maybe i'm over complicating them.
hmm can't remeber chi square testing... out of the others I hope its standard dev.
chi squared hasn't come up before so i think there's a good chance that it'll turn up this time
Hiya i've that exam. I'm not too worried about the fieldwork bit unless how we presented it comes up :P My teacher hasn't taught us chi squared because she couldn't find it on the syllabus. I'm going to double check though. I haven't a clue how to use it and it seems like plenty of people are saying it might come up on here
What exactly is standard deviation? I never got my head around it in a-level maths so i'm even more confused in geography
Remember though the spec has just changed so its the 2008 spec you need to check!
I have a feeling (and hope) that it will be something statistical. Im quite good at standard deviation, location quotient etc. Lorenz curves should be ok its hard to analyse though and i hope to god we dont get a report at the end. Ill end up waffling. Anyone think a long section could come up though? trying to repeat similar to summer with the cross section?
well if you're 100% sure that chi-squared won't turn up then that's good, also i didn't actually know the spec speicified which techniques we needed or not needed, i'm looking through the spec now but find nothing on what is needed for this exam, it just says be able to analyse data, evaluate data etc.
HELP! Ive just looked at the spec and found that condidence limits and standard error of the mean, also index numbers may come up. My teacher has not even mentioned these at all so i am panicking. My sister has done these at uni but is confusing me further. Could anyone help me out??
damn, my teacher never even mentioned the spec, he just rambled on saying anything could come up
could anyone help out also wiht lorenzcurves. one i see in my text book has ranks on the x axis and the other cumulative percent in service occupations. What the difference between the 2 whe drawing them?
