Stem & Leaf Diagrams

Students learn how to read data and calculate averages from a stem and leaf diagram.  As learning progresses students go from interpreting stem and leaf diagrams to creating their own using an appropriate key.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot a stem and leaf diagram.
  • Most students should be able to plot and interpret the median, mode and range from a stem and leaf diagram.
  • Some students should be able to compare data sets using from a back-to-back stem and leaf diagram.

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 […]
