Plotting Scatter Graphs

Students learn how to plot scatter graphs to identify whether any correlation exists between to measurements.  As learning progresses students distinguish between types and strength of correlation and how to interpret this in context to the data presented.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot a scatter graph when the scales are provided.
  • Most students should be able to choose their own scales to plot a scatter graph.
  • Some students should be able to determine whether two measurements correlate by plotting a scatter graph and line of best fit.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
