Coursework Intro

2
Coursework Rules Candidates must not: submit work which is not their own; lend work to other candidates; allow other candidates access to, or the use of, their own independently-sourced source material; include work copied directly from books, the internet or other sources without acknowledgement or attribution; submit work typed or word-processed by a third person without acknowledgement.

3
Deadlines First Piece – Based on Data Analysis or Decision Starting now. 4 weeks of lesson time. Deadline for hand in is before half term. Second Piece – Based on Algebra and Calculus Starting after Christmas. Depending on progress with calculus unit.

4
Portfolio Requirements Candidates are required to produce two pieces of work in their Coursework Portfolios: Each piece must be one coherent task with a consistent theme. The two pieces must be based upon the work of two different units from Algebra, Data Analysis, Decision Maths or Calculus. Work going beyond that of a specific unit is, of course, acceptable but each piece can score full marks without the candidate working beyond the specification. A substantial proportion of the work for each piece must be on work beyond Higher Level GCSE Mathematics.

5
Marking Criteria For each of the two tasks, the candidate will be given a mark, from 0 to 7, for each of three themes: Structuring and presenting work Using appropriate mathematics (and technology) and working accurately Interpreting mathematics

Data Analysis Regression lines problems. – Does a persons shoe size link to height? – Does the number of ice creams sold link to the temperature? Need to collect data. How? – Internet – Questionnaire – Measuring Extending needed eg comparisons between boys and girls links, can calculate averages and standard deviation also to look at data.

11
Decision Maths Travelling Salesman – Tourist route around a city. – Route around a theme park. – To extend consider many upper and lower bounds then choose the best. – If possible actually try out to check.

12
Decision Maths Critical Path Analysis – Cooking a meal. – Planning a complex multistage event. – Must include precedence table, activity network and cascade diagram. – Can extend with resource histogram.

14
Task Decide on your initial idea based on the topics discussed. Start some initial revision of the topic. You should have at least decided which topic you are planning to do your project on as we will do some revision of these as a class next lesson. You should enter details of any research or decisions you have made into your google doc created.
