Analysing motor race performance
Type: StarterDuration: 10 mins
Modern data analysis techniques can be used to provide ongoing performance analysis of the vehicles in a motor race. However, even the most sophisticated of data analysis systems will only tell part of the story, they will often identify an issue, but will rarely provide a solution unless it is relatively simple. Additional expert input is normally required to interpret data and find solutions to problems.
An engaging starter activity in which students will use data from one lap of a motor race to answer a series of questions.
The activity sheet includes teacher notes, guidance, useful web links, and links (where appropriate) to the national curriculum in each of the four devolved UK nations; England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
All activity sheets and supporting resources are free to download, and all the documents are fully editable, so you can tailor them to your students' and your schools' needs.
