A key step in numeracy is being able to read and interpret tables and graphs. It's not as easy as it looks! It gets tested on exams and these are common questions where students will lose marks. This Little Quick Fix will prep students to make sure they're ready to read, interpret and produce tables and graphs that will score them good marks.

Little Quick Fix titles provide quick but authoritative answers to the problems, hurdles, and assessment points students face in the research course, project proposal, or design - whatever their methods learning is.

Lively, ultra-modern design; full-colour, each page a tailored design. An hour's read. Easy to dip in and out of with clear navigation enables the reader to find what she needs - quick. Direct written style gets to the point with clear language. Nothing needs to be read twice. No fluff. Learning is reinforced through a 2-minute overview summary; 3-second summaries with super-quick Q&A DIY tasks create a work plan to accomplish a task, do a self-check quiz, solve a problem, get students to what they need to show their supervisor. Checkpoints in each section make sure students are nailing it as they go and support self-directed learning. How do I know I'm done? Each Little Quick Fix wraps up with a final checklist that allows the reader to self-assess they've got what they need to progress, submit, or ace the test or task.
