Interpreting Bar Charts, Pie Charts, Box and Whisker Plots S5

Rate this resource

In this resource from the DfE Standards Unit, students will learn to understand and interpret bar charts, pie charts, and box and whisker plots. This session is in two linked parts. The first is matching pie charts to bar charts and secondly matching box and whisker plots to bar charts. Each part of the session starts with a whole group discussion to compare the newly-introduced type of representation, looking at its advantages, disadvantages and practical applications. Students then work in pairs. No prior knowledge is assumed, though it is helpful if students have encountered some of these ideas before. (GCSE Grades A-D)
