Title: Presenting data from a bipolar evaluation of sea defences
Post by: GeogFun on October 02, 2015, 10:32:21 AM
morning

Looking for a little bit of advice. Any suggestions on how to get students to present data from bipolar evaluations of coastal defences by hand. We do not have access to IT.

ideally I would like some sort of graphical representation that can then be located onto a map.

many thanks

Can they do a bar chart? If your scale is say -3 to +3, rather than starting at 0 they start -3 and work up? Would that work?

Simply produce a line graph on the data collection sheet or combine several on a new blank data sheet

Radar diagram could be done without IT too

I normally get the students to create a radial/web graph of bipolar analyses

we use mini bar graphs of each site located on a map showing the scores for the criteria (complex skill for GCSE CA - AQA) and also a bar graph of the total scores for each site

I had completely forgotten about a radar / radial graph - does anyone know if this is possible to do on excel ?

We normally do radar on the computers- never done it by hand before so didn't suggest it- can someone advise on this?

On Excel you type the data into the columns and highlight as per normal- then go to insert a graph/chart- click on other charts and radar comes up as an option.

For radar would just set lines radiating out from centre starting at the largest negative number building to largest positive then join the dots. Hopefully that would work.

have used a radar/web graph with ours- with the different categories as the different points or a stacked bar

I would do radar, excel will make one. If you give them the axis then they should be able to plot it by hand if you do not have access to computers

If you email me, I'll send over my powerpoint as I have just done this with my year 11s.
