LESSON PRESENTATION

TEACHER’S ACTIVITIES 

Teacher,

1. Guides students to provide information on their aged number of children in the families and other areas of life.

2. Guides students to tabulate data collected.

3. Guides students to lists the various forms of presentation of data.

4. Leads students to construct a table from given data.

5. Guides students to draw different types of linear graphs and bar graphs including component bar graphs.

6. Leads students to construct grouped frequency tables and use same to construct histograms.

7. Calls out students to identify the differences between bar charts and histograms.

8. Leads students to calculate the angular equivalent of the different frequencies in a given distribution using the idea of ratios and proportion.

9. Guides students to draw pie charts using their compass, and protractors.

10. Guides students to interpret the pie chart in terms of the sectorial angles.

11. Guides the students to construct the frequency polygon of a given distribution.

 

STUDENT’S ACTIVITIES

Students,

1. Submit objects like corks, etc to the class.

2. Tabulate the objects into specific categories.

4. Construct a table from the given data.

5. Draw linear and bar charts of given ungrounded data.

6. Construct grouped data frequency tables and use them to draw histograms.

7. Enumerate the differences between bar-charts and histograms.

8. Calculate the sectorial angles; draw pie-charts correctly to interpret data.

9. Construct the frequency polygon from a grouped data.
