This is an interactive product which is organised into 4 sections:
1. How to Draw Graphs. • This takes pupils through the steps needed to draw an accurate graph from a set of data. • It explains what we mean by variables and introduces the terms x axis and y axis. • The plotting tool makes plotting points extremely simple. • This section deliberately takes pupils slightly beyond the requirements of the National Curriculum by introducing two key terms - dependent and independent variable. We believe that this is the best approach. Pupils need to understand which variable is being manipulated.
2. More Practice Plotting Graphs. • This gives pupils two sets of data to plot using our plotting tool.
3. More Practice Interpreting Graphs • This section provides two more sets of data enabling pupils to practice plotting the graphs and then interpreting the data.
4. We are Ready for Really Quite Horrible Graphs! • This last section does what it says on the tin. • These two questions are challenging (but achievable). Give this section to your most able pupils!
