# Drawing Pie Charts

To plot pie charts at GCSE students are taught to calculate a fraction of the circle using the frequency and sample size.  There are examples provided for the teacher to demonstrate and for the students to practice.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to plot and interpret basic facts from a Pie Chart where the sample size is a factor of 360.
• Most students should be able to plot and compare facts about a pie chart.
• Some students should be able to plot and compare facts about a pie chart and appreciate the limitations of using pie charts to represent data.
