Stem & Leaf Diagrams

Students learn how to read data and calculate averages from a stem and leaf diagram.  As learning progresses students go from interpreting stem and leaf diagrams to creating their own using an appropriate key.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot a stem and leaf diagram.
  • Most students should be able to plot and interpret the median, mode and range from a stem and leaf diagram.
  • Some students should be able to compare data sets using from a back-to-back stem and leaf diagram.

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 […]

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]
