School corner

“School corner” comprises main statistical indicators on total area, number of population and ethnic composition, age structure, fertility rates, employment and unemployment, gross domestic product, foreign trade, tourism, European Union and other themes presented in a comprehensive manner. Statistical indicators are carefully chosen taking into account educational plans for geography lessons of the 9th grade and teachers can use the material as visual aid in their lessons – it is easy to print and copy (also in black-and-white).

Easy to understand explanation of terms and colourful layout of statistical tables and charts helps to see the essentials of a subject matter and foster effective understanding and analysis of the statistical information. In some factsheets school children can calculate data on their own, according to formula provided, in order to deepen the understanding of new concepts.
