# Construct and Interpret Pie Charts

Students learn how to construct a pie chart from a frequency table.  As learning progresses they compare sets of data by working out the frequencies.At the start of the lesson students recap finding a fraction of an amount as this is need throughout the lesson.  The plenary challenges students to interpret two pie charts showing the change in population from 1960 and 2014.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to construct a pie chart.
• Most students should be able to construct and interpret a pie chart.
• Some students should be able to compare a two pie charts by calculating frequencies.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]

#### Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
