Interpreting Histograms

Students learn how to interpret histograms with unequal class widths at higher GCSE mathematics level.

As learning progresses students are challenged to calculate the mean estimate from a histogram.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the total frequency from a histogram with unequal class widths.
  • Most students should be able to calculate an estimate of frequency within a given range for a histogram with unequal class widths.
  • Some students should be able to estimate the mean average from a histogram with unequal class widths.

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.
