    I know this is no longer in the current (Y11) GCSE spec. But has it been put back in for the new 9-1 Spec?
    I can see no specific reference to it, but it is included in some new spec text books we have bought.

    time series graphs are mentioned (S3). moving averages not specifically.
    Moving averages ARE on current OCR spec for y11. ref HSS4

    Thanks. I'm looking at Edexcel. Moving averages was removed from the 2010 Edexcel Spec, and I can't see any mention of it going back in for 2015.
    The new text book is not Edexcel specific/approved, so maybe that's why.

    I've just checked Edexcel and it has clearly gone from the 2017 exam. A number of textbooks seem to have missed this, and other things, and still including it. You aren't the first person to question the discrepancies between specs and textbooks.

    We all know about moving averages. Shame the Government doesn't.

    Q98 Chair: One is: if "good" requires pupil performance to exceed the national average, and if all schools must be good, how is this mathematically possible?

    Michael Gove: By getting better all the time.

    Q99 Chair: So it is possible, is it?

    Michael Gove: It is possible to get better all the time.

    Q100 Chair: Were you better at literacy than numeracy, Secretary of State?

    Michael Gove: I cannot remember.

    I miss moving averages. I had some lovely resources for it.
