Draw and Interpret Line Graphs

Using real life data students learn how to draw and interpret line graphs. As learning progresses students learn how to use line graphs to interpret trends over time and predict future values.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to construct a line graph given scaled axes.
  • Most students should be able to construct and interpret a line graph to identify trends over time.
  • Some students should be able to use a line graph to compare two sets of data over time.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
