Mean Average and Range

Students learn how to find the mean average and range.  Building on calculating the mean students compare sets of data using the average and range as a measure of spread.At the start of the lesson students recap the mean average by comparing totals.  In the main part they learn how to compare the spread of data using the range.  In the plenary they using the range and mean to calculate missing data values.

Differentiated Learning Objectives

  • All students should be able to calculate the mean average and range from a set of data.
  • Most students should be able to compare data sets using the mean and range.
  • Some students should be able to use the mean and range to calculate unknown data values

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 […]
