When I was told I had to teach statistics to a group Advanced GNVQ Business students many years ago I did wonder how I would approach it.
In the end I went with themed series of bitesize lessons.
Each lesson had a theme, some of these included:
Time Series – Toy Story, to infinity and beyond, could now use Doctor Who
Correlation – Indiana Jones
Regression – Star Trek
Dispersion and Range – Blackadder goes Forth
Normal Distribution – X-Files
Each lesson was self-contained and included theory and different kinds of assessment.
It seemed to work well, with students who years later still remembered many of the lessons.
As for copyright, well I was a different person then…
