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.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]
