1 st February 2013 Objective: To be able to create Frequency Polygons (grade C/D) Skills: Noticing, Making Links and Absorption By the end of the lesson: All: can identify the midpoint of grouped data Most: Plot a frequency polygon Some: Identify the modal class

Starter What is the midpoint between the following numbers? Green 1)0 – 10 2)40 – 50 3)30 – 40 4)0 – 100 5)0 – 50 Red 1)54 – 56 2) 5 – 9 3) 8 – 14 4) 38 – 52 5) 0 – 5
