Draw and Interpret Line Graphs

Using real life data students learn how to draw and interpret line graphs. As learning progresses students learn how to use line graphs to interpret trends over time and predict future values.At the start of the lesson students work in pairs to discuss three common mistakes when drawing duel bar charts. The end of lesson challenges students to examine the population increase and identify values that go against the overall trend.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to construct a line graph given scaled axes.
  • Most students should be able to construct and interpret a line graph to identify trends over time.
  • Some students should be able to use a line graph to compare two sets of data over time.

How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]

Calculations with Percentages

Students learn how to find a percentage of an amount using calculator and non-calculator methods.  As learning progresses they use decimal multipliers to find a percentage change and calculate a simple interest in financial mathematics. This topic follows on from Fractions, Decimals and Percentages and takes place in Year 8 Term 5. Calculations with Percentages […]

Proving Geometrical Relationships using Algebra

Back in May 2017 maths teachers around the country eagerly awaited the first exam for the new GCSE Mathematics syllabus.  Proving geometrical relationships using algebra featured at grade 9.  In Paper 1 of Edexcel’s test paper the last question of the higher tier looked like this. Edexcel wrote about student’s performance on this question in […]
