Applied Understanding This is the theory behind the coursework
Applied Understanding What is tourism? Why has tourism increased over the past 50 years? What is a ‘Honeypot’? What are the advantages and disadvantages of tourism? Why is Malvern popular with tourists? What is an AONB? State the Hypothesis and the enquiry questions.
Methodology Follow the guidance on the table and develop it. Add in any theory regarding things like footpath erosion. Evaluate the methods. Use any photographs of you actually collecting the data, annotate them.
Data Presentation This is when where we use the data and put it in graphs, table and on maps
For each method suggest how you could present the data. Footpath erosion Hotel Guest survey Tax discs Questionnaire Strip map Bi polar
Data Interpretation This is where I describe and explain my graphs and maps.
Data Interpretation The graph/ map/ table showing…(title of map/ graph /table). It shows… (describe the pattern). This is because… (give reasons for the pattern). This can help me to answer the enquiry question…(write relevant enquiry question).
Data Interpretation From the _________ showing ___________ I can see……(describe what the map/graph/table etc. shows – include figures in your description – go into as much detail as you can). One explanation for these results is………… Another reason for…………………. is ………………………….. This data suggest the hypothesis is (true/false). This is because………. My findings (do/do not) fit in with the theory. This is because……
Conclusion Write a summary of your key findings in this investigation. You can write these in bullet points. Read your conclusions – then read your hypothesis.’Malvern is a Tourist honeypot’. Do you accept or reject the hypothesis? Give reasons for your decision.
Evaluation Have you collected enough data? Have you had any problems collecting this data? Describe the disadvantages of the techniques used Would your results have been improved if you had collected more data, different data, data at a different time or data with a different method? How might you improve your methods if you repeated the study? Do you think your results are accurate?
Evaluation Identify which results support your hypothesis and give reasons Identify which results reject your hypothesis and give reasons Explain why your conclusions might not be applied to other similar examples Explain why your conclusions might be invalid or wrong What needs to be done to: – Increase the accuracy of results – Increase the reliability of methods –Increase the validity of the conclusions
To increase the accuracy of the To increase the reliability of the To increase the validity (how long this data will last) of the Methods I would Results I would Conclusions I would
