| Before I begin with the usual blog post, we need to apologise for the first 3,5 minutes of this recording. We had no sound until half way through our discussion about step 14 in Teach like a Champion. We have put in subtitles until the sound kicks in. We were a little crazy, thinking we could talk about two sections in one hour. That's four weeks of work. Robyn and I covered a lot of ground, but I've also include links to other websites that could inspire you. |

We started by pointing out that both statistics and probability have two weeks allocated to them, which is the same length of time dedicated to Euclidean Geometry. It blows my mind that Euclidean Geometry is worth up to 53 marks, and statistics and probability are worth a combined total of up to 41 marks. The ratio of time versus marks just makes no sense.

There was a lot of information in Robyn's presentation, so rather than pasting it here, I've decided to embed it. If you'd like to see it full screen, click here.

And lastly, you were promised a list of helpful links. Here they are:
