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.

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.
