              Frequency Diagrams and Polygons

              To plot frequency polygons at GCSE students learn how to choose suitable axes depending on the categorical data and frequencies given.  As learning progress they are challenged to group their own data and make comments on the trend from the frequency polygon.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to plot and interpret a Frequency Diagram and Polygon for data presented in a frequency table.
              • Most students should be able to plot and interpret a Frequency Diagram and Polygon for data presented in a grouped frequency table.
              • Some students should be able to compare distributions using Frequency Polygons.

              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 […]
