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

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related.

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
