              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

              Preparing Students for a Mathematics Exam

              Preparing students for a mathematics exam takes time, patience and careful planning.  In this blog I will share my ideas for teaching students how to prepare for their final exams.  These are strategies that have worked well for me and I have see work well for others.  Creative writing to formulate ideas Students need space […]

              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 […]
