              Plotting Scatter Graphs

              Students learn how to plot scatter graphs to identify whether any correlation exists between to measurements.  As learning progresses students distinguish between types and strength of correlation and how to interpret this in context to the data presented.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to plot a scatter graph when the scales are provided.
              • Most students should be able to choose their own scales to plot a scatter graph.
              • Some students should be able to determine whether two measurements correlate by plotting a scatter graph and line of best fit.

              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 […]
