Drawing Stem and Leaf Diagrams

Students learn about drawing stem and leaf diagrams using a key.  More able students are challenged to plot back to back diagrams.  Less able students are given the key and work mostly with tens and units.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot a stem and leaf diagram using tens and units.
  • Most students should be able to plot an ordered stem and leaf diagram using primary data.
  • Some students should be able to plot a back to back stem and leaf diagram.

Solving 3D Problems using Trigonometry

When teaching solving 3D problems using trigonometry we begin the lesson with a recap of Pythagoras’ Theorem and the three trigonometric ratios.  We do this by matching the ratio and equations to the respective right-angled triangle.   Students are encouraged to work in pairs and to show the diagrams as part of the working out on […]
