Cumulative Frequency Graphs

To plot cumulative frequency graphs students are taught to find the cumulative frequency from grouped data tables, choose suitable axes and how to plot the curve.  As learning progresses students learn how to draw the median average and interquartile range from the graph and what they represent about the data.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot a cumulative frequency graph from a grouped data table.
  • Most students should be able to plot and interpret the median and IQR from a cumulative frequency graph.
  • Some students should be able to plot and interpret a cumulative frequency to compare multiple data sets.

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]
