Kent and Medway Online Teacher Network

Statistics: Making it Real


The Kent and Medway Online Teacher Network is a composite of the 3 face-to-face teacher networks which run in the Kent and Medway region. Network meetings will run 3 times per academic year and will focus on teacher professional development. Because it is an online classroom, negating the geographical challenges normally present with with network meetings, it is open to the whole Kent and Medway region. It is is an AMSP-funded project allowing teachers of maths to meet, collaborate and to share professional development. 


  • Data presentation and interpretation
  • Summary statistics
  • Bivariate data



“Statistics is not about numbers – it’s about what is this data, how was it collected and what does it mean?”            Dashiell Young Saver, Skew The Script


This short professional development course will look at a number of ways of developing ideas to make the Statistics within GCSE Mathematics relevant and real through the use of authentic and meaningful contexts. There will be opportunities for discussion as well as signposting to further study for your students.



  • Use relevant ideas to teach Statistics
  • Use technology effectively


Who will benefit from attending?

Teachers of GCSE Mathematics who wish to develop their teaching of the statistics content of GCSE maths and/or the skills of their students, especially those hoping to raise student aspiration to study Maths beyond GCSE.
