To plot bar charts at GCSE students learn how to choose suitable axes depending on the categorical data and frequencies. As learning progresses students are challenged to draw multiple and composite bar charts and comment on their findings.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
All students should be able to interpret a bar chart using the modal average.
Most students should be able to plot and interpret a bar chart by comparing frequencies.
Some students should be able to plot a dual bar chart to compare data sets.
