              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.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]
