Also of 'festive' interest to us geographers is this article on 'how far and fast does santa have to travel?'

Display Materials

Christmas Quiz

This PowerPoint contains 16 photos used in a mobile phone advert, each photo represents a country using painted hands. In the PowerPoint I've blocked the mobile phones using a question mark and students have to guess the country. I've used this to decorate World Maps.

A few people have asked for the answers. To find the answers, click here to see the original adverts with the country names included.

Recording sound using Audacity

Audacity is free to download. It will record any sound coming from your computer, which you can then edit. I've used the programme loads to record radio programmes, which I've then edited down to suit my needs.

Click here to see an example of a radio 4 programme that I've edited down. The programme was discussing how many people live on a dollar a day, and what that figure means in reality. There is also a worksheet to go with this resource

 

Statistical Analysis Techniques

Spearman Rank Correlation Coefficient outline here plus significance table and instructions here.
