Box and Whisker Diagrams

Students learn how to compare sets of data using box and whisker diagrams to measure the interquartile range and median average.  As learning progresses cumulative frequency diagrams are used to create box plots.  This lesson comes with a worksheet to practise drawing box plots and another to practise drawing them from grouped data.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the median from a Box and Whisker Diagram to comment on a distribution.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the median and IQR from a Box and Whisker Diagram to comment on a distribution.
  • Some students should be able to compare multiple distributions using the Median and IQG from a Box and Whisker diagram.

This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question. Solve x2 + 7x – 18 = 0 In my experience of teaching and marking exam papers students often struggle with […]

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
