Maths on the Moor

This resource has been created to associate the use of mathematics and statistical principles to real world situations. In this resource the dataset was realised from a study on the effect of predators to the Lapwing population on two Northern moors.
Lapwings are ground-nesting birds which are in serious decline. One possible factor for this decline in moorland areas is thought to be the predation of nesting birds, eggs and chicks by foxes and crows. To test this hypothesis an experiment was undertaken in Northumberland from 2002 to 2007.
The target audience for this resource is secondary school level.
