Yr 10 GCSE Coursework The Hypotheses Section
1.What do you think the word Hypothesis means? 2.What do you think you need to do in the hypotheses questions section? 3.What can you use as evidence to prove and explain your hypotheses questions?
Learning Objectives… To understand how to write-up your hypotheses questions. To use your results data to help prove/explain your hypotheses questions. To link geographical theories to your hypotheses questions and explanations.
What is the examiner looking for? L1 1-2 The candidate produces a mainly descriptive account in which conclusions are either missing or rarely attempted. What we will be looking for.... We will be examining how well you have analysed your results. We will be looking at your conclusions about each hypothesis. L3 5-6 The candidate uses processed data to clearly explore the hypothesis and draw detailed conclusions that are fully consistent with the evidence. L2 3-4 The candidate is able to analyse the processed data and to draw valid conclusions related to the hypothesis. Understanding:
What is the examiner looking for? L1 1-3 The candidate is able to apply some basic geographical knowledge to the investigation of the hypothesis. What we will be looking for.... To achieve this you will need to make sensible links between hypothesis - results - geographical theory. Application L3 7-8 The candidate is able to demonstrate a competent linkage between the findings of the research and relevant geographical ideas and principles. L2 4-6 The candidate is able, with some success, to relate the findings of the research to specific geographical ideas.
Matching task – match each hypothesis question to the surveys you would need to prove it / explain it… The river, its channel and its valley get wider as you travel downstream. VelocityGradientChannel profile Valley Profile Bedload Size & Shape The cross-sectional area and the velocity of the river increases as you travel downstream. VelocityGradientChannel profile Valley Profile Bedload Size & Shape The gradient of a river decreases as you travel downstream. VelocityGradientChannel profile Valley Profile Bedload Size & Shape The size of the bedload decreases and its roundness increases as you travel downstream. VelocityGradientChannel profile Valley Profile Bedload Size & Shape The Land Use of the Valley Changes as you go downstream. VelocityGradientChannel profile Valley Profile Bedload Size & Shape
As you watch the film clip make a note of how the river and its features change as you travel downstream …
1.Write out the hypothesis question 2. State if you think it is true or false? 3. Prove it – use evidence (figures from graphs/photos/results tables). 4. Why have you got these results – add theories to your explanation (erosion processes, transport processes, gravity, ice age). 5. Does your river behave like a river should in theory? If not why not? 6. What may have affected/influenced your results? Remember… Use photos to help explain your points linkage! Include lots of annotated diagrams!
Watch the film clip and list all the river processes mentioned…
Erosion Processes: Hydraulic action Attrition Abrasion Solution Transportation Processes: Traction Saltation Suspension Solution Other Theories: Deposition Gravity Geology Velocity Remember to add diagrams & annotate them! How might better equipment have helped? Remember we only surveyed the upper valley – how would it be down stream?
What mark would you give this work – high, average or low? What have they done that is good? If you were marking this work, what could you suggest, for this student to get a better mark? (What could they add to improve their answer)?
Make a list of the things you have to complete for the Results and Hypotheses sections. Complete the Results Section and Hypotheses Section. I feel confident! I feel ok! Im a bit muddled! Do you understand how to complete the Hypotheses Section? Remember to attend the lunchtime coursework help sessions…
