Two way tables (or contingency tables) are used when data can be categorised in more than one way. For example, if collecting data on the favourite colours of students in a high school class, we could further split this data by gender – so rather than just display the total number of students that liked green, we could see the number of girls and the number of boys that chose green as their favourite.
A two way table can also be constructed to display relative frequencies or proportions rather than the raw data – for example, by displaying the percentage of data items in each category.
Students may also be asked to read information from two way tables and use this to solve problems – for example, to calculate the probability of selecting someone within a certain category.
It is likely that students will have prior knowledge of reading tables, including two-way tables and timetables, from their work in Key Stage 2.
Looking forward, students can then progress to additional Statistics worksheets, for example an averages worksheet or frequency table worksheet.
For more teaching and learning support on Statistics our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.
There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them succeed in their maths GCSEs. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
