World Cup mean, median, mode and range activity.

World Cup mean, median, mode and range activity.

This was done as a revision activity. I began with the powerpoint looking at the world cup fact about average ages of teams and reminded pupils there are 3 averages and showed how to work them out. The pupils were then each given a world cup group and had to find the mean, median, mode and range of ages of the teams. (N.B. I did these quickly - some ages might not be exactly right or some players may not be in the squads)

Frequency Table - Graph Generator - Excel

Frequency Table - Graph Generator - Excel

A great resource that automatically generates charts and graphs by entering your data into the frequency table, this saves plenty of time. There is also a tab for printing. Children need to label the chart and the axis. A useful resource for numeracy if you wish to incorporate ICT into the lesson but do not wish to spend time teaching them how to make a graph in Excel. Can be used on the IWB. Feel free to adapt/share/enjoy! Steve Ideal for KS1, KS2 and KS3 students.

Great Graphs: Animated Teaching Tool

Great Graphs: Animated Teaching Tool

This is a series of animated flash movies for students to use on a computer, to go through as homework, or for you to use on an IWB as an exposition teaching tool. I designed it to address the big issues students have with drawing axes (using sensible scales, marking off axes, identifying where the dependent variables should go etc), plotting points correctly and drawing lines of best fit. Great Graphs 1 - Drawing axes Great Graphs 2 - Plotting Points Great Graphs 3 - Lines of best fit (work in progress). Suitable for KS3, KS4 and Post 16 classes.

Plotting a Scatter Diagram - Activity. Lesson plan

Plotting a Scatter Diagram - Activity. Lesson plan

This resource pack teaches pupils how to create a scatter diagram. It is split into sections taking pupils through the process step by step allowing them to interact with the resource before showing them the answers. Pupils can plot the data and draw the line of best fit then use the graph to estimate particular values. Section 2 allows the pupils to build on this work by drawing and comparing graphs to answer questions. Ideal for KS3 students.
