Plotting Time Series

To plot a time series at GCSE students are taught to choose suitable axes from the data available and recognise trends over time.  As learning progresses students begin to consider seasonal changes and hypothesise for their occurrence.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recognise and describe a trend over time from a time series.
  • Most students should be able to plot a time series and trend line to describe upwards, downwards or level trends.
  • Some students should be able to recognise and describe seasonal variations from a time series.

Rounding to a significant figure

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected. You can […]
