In this lesson, we will be looking at line graphs; why we use them, what key features they require and what we can interpret from the data shown within them.

In this lesson, we will learn to read line graphs accurately in order to make factual statements based on the information displayed.

In this lesson, we will be learning how to accurately read a line graph to obtain the correct information. We will also be looking how a different scale on the y-axis can change appearance of the data line.

In this lesson, we will compare and interpret different line graphs using the same axes and complete missing data points and values on both line graphs and tables.

In this lesson, we will be constructing our very own line graphs and presenting different data. We will then be able to interpret and compare the data presented to answer questions and create a series of factual statements.

In this lesson, we will be looking at a different type of line graph: a conversion graph. We will discuss what they are and how they are used. We will then construct our own conversion tasks which will allow us to convert between centimetres and inches.

In this lesson, we will be introducing timetables, what they can tell us and the skills we require to use them accurately when interpreting the information they possess. We will then be using a timetable to help respond to a series of questions and requests as an example of real life context.

In this lesson, we will be sharing efficient methods for calculating the time intervals listed on timetables. By using the methods modelled, we will be able to identify missing information on incomplete timetables.

In this lesson, we will be exploring bus and train timetables, using our skills to interpret the information to answer a range of questions as well as generating our own questions to match the information provided. We will also be looking once again at the how the strategy of an empty number line can help us calculate time intervals with the assistance of some teacher modelling.

In this lesson, we will be reviewing the entire unit of line graphs and timetables by completing a series of challenges and problems based on the different concepts taught across all of the lessons throughout the unit. This lesson can be watched in its entirety or specific sections can be visited if pupils wish to focus their learning and consolidation on a specific concept.
