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

Solving Inequalities using a Number Line

Students should be able to represent the solutions to an inequality on a number line, using set notation or as a list of integer values.  Here’s how I teach using the balance method for solving inequalities using a number line. Matching inequalities, Number sets and Number Lines At the start of the lesson students recap […]

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
