Interpreting Pie Charts

To interpret pie charts at GCSE students are taught to use equivalent ratios by identifying a common frequency and angle from the pie chart.  As learning progresses they are challenged to compare sets of data by finding the frequencies from various pie charts.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recognise the limitations of representing data using pie charts.
  • Most students should be able to calculate frequencies from a pie chart when given the sample size.
  • Some students should be able to compare data distributions by comparing frequencies found from pie charts

Mathematics OFSTED Inspection – The Deep Dive

Earlier this week, my school took part in a trial OFSTED inspection as part of getting ready for the new inspection framework in September 2019. This involved three Lead Inspectors visiting our school over the course of two days. The first day involved a ‘deep dive’ by each of the Lead Inspectors into Mathematics, English […]

How to Solve Quadratics by Factorising

The method of how to solve quadratics by factorising is now part of the foundational knowledge students aiming for higher exam grades are expected to have.   Here is an example of such a question.

How Write 3 Part Ratios

When learning how to write 3-part ratios students need to understand how ratios can be made equivalent. The start of the lesson reminds students by asking which of six ratios is the odd one out.  This is presented to the class as they come into the lesson.    Writing Equivalent Ratios  A few students immediately go […]
