Drawing Bar Charts

To plot bar charts at GCSE students learn how to choose suitable axes depending on the categorical data and frequencies.  As learning progresses students are challenged to draw multiple and composite bar charts and comment on their findings.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to interpret a bar chart using the modal average.
  • Most students should be able to plot and interpret a bar chart by comparing frequencies.
  • Some students should be able to plot a dual bar chart to compare 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 […]
