# Interpreting Scatter Graphs

Students learn how to use the line of best fit to estimate missing data values.  To extend on this in the development phase students go on to consider what it means for two measurements to have a positive, negative or no correlation.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to determine whether two measures correlation using a scatter graph.
• Most students should be able to plot a line of best fit from a scatter graph and use that to determine the strength and type of correlation between two measures.
• Some students should be able to use a line of bit fit and their understanding of correlation to estimate one measure when the other is provided.

#### 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 […]
