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.

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 […]
