Secondary Business- Analysing Financial information

When getting students to discuss and apply financial information, I often use the example of a ‘Bowling Alley’ (Worksheet 1) . This part of the course is crucial as students often remember how to calculate ratios and other financial calculations but struggle to comment on them. This example is fun and can be a golden revision technique. The 3 main points are:

• Previous Years- The results from previous games!

• Industry average- The average scores of all players in your lane (Industry)

• Competitors- Watching the other players in your lane!

Once students understand this, they can move onto real examples from past papers or case studies.
