Students learn how to calculate speed, density and pressure as compound measures. They apply this knowledge to plot and interpret distance and speed versus time graphs. This topic takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 for Foundation tier and Term 1 Year 10 for Higher. Compound measures follows on from Units of Measure.
know and apply formulae to calculate:
use standard units of measure and related concepts (length, area, volume/capacity, mass, time, money, etc.)
Students are challenged to apply their understanding of the mean, mode, median and range to calculate datasets by setting up and solving equations.
Five, real-life and functional problem solving questions on compound percentage changes.
