Slough and Windsor Teacher Network

Working with Desmos and the Large Data Set


Slough and Windsor Teacher Network is an AMSP-funded project, allowing teachers of A level Mathematics to meet, collaborate and to share best practice. We meet between 4 and 6 times per academic year. The programme is mainly speaker-led training events and may include informal sessions. The events will be a mix of online and face to face events.


In this network meeting we will be briefly discuss how schools are using the Large Data Set to teach the Statistics element of the A level Maths syllabus.

The focus will then move to how Desmos can be used to manipulate the data and so students and teachers can use Desmos themselves or in the classroom.

There will be a chance to be hands on and to discuss what has been shown.
