# Plotting Time Series

To plot a time series at GCSE students are taught to choose suitable axes from the data available and recognise trends over time.  As learning progresses students begin to consider seasonal changes and hypothesise for their occurrence.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to recognise and describe a trend over time from a time series.
• Most students should be able to plot a time series and trend line to describe upwards, downwards or level trends.
• Some students should be able to recognise and describe seasonal variations from a time series.

#### 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 […]
