## Pie charts

#### Pie Chart Lesson

The starter is designed to assess understanding of fractions, equivalent fractions and as proportional representations.

The first task is scaffolded to allow a soft entry into the task and their is an extension to build the understanding of percentages representing proportion of population.

The second extension builds understanding of fractional degrees as a plotting point.

Included in the lesson:

Starter - Fraction assessment

Task 1 - Reading Pie Charts

Extension

Task 2 - Drawing Pie Charts

## Histograms

#### Histograms (Read/Draw/Overlap)

The context is that I've asked various groups (eg Year 7, Year 8) to do a simple jigsaw puzzle and timed how long they took.

The sheet starts with "read only" questions, then drawing questions then exam style questions. The scales constantly change.

#### Histograms revision

The pdf exactly matches the flipchart. Both demonstrate drawing the histogram, drawing a frequency table from a histogram, moving forwards and backwards between graph and table and, finally, some applications questions modelled on Edexcel's harder questions.

#### Histogram activity Understanding Frequency Density

## Scatter diagrams

#### Correlation and cause

#### Scatter Diagrams

(b) Identify correlation (e.g. "strong negative")

(c) Draw a line of best fit and use to predict values.

(d) Predict correlation (including strength) from real-life examples when data not given (e.g. house price with distance from London).

This was used for a year 9 interview lesson. The lesson went very well and I got the job :)

Starter handouts are at the end of the notbook file, or can be downloaded separately.

The main activity is three - way differentiated and can be downloaded separately.

There are lots of opportunities for rich discussions on interpreting the graphs.

The green activity shows nicely how moving averages smooth data (using more points does more smoothing), but can also move peaks and troughs.

All ideas are pulled together in a discussion based plenary.
