Grade 11 Biology students learnt how to calculate the actual size of an organism from an electron micrograph using a scale bar shown in the image. Later they were divided into four groups. Each group was a given an organism one protozoa and one photosynthetic organism to research on a based on seven characteristics of life a unicellular organism has. They did an activity Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â using Montero cubes to understand the importance of surface area to volume ratio which gives an explanation for the cells being small in size. They are having a test of 15 marks on Monday.

Grade 11 Math (SL / HL) – Highlights

## Grade 11 Math (SL / HL) – Highlights

After collection of the data , the important part is organization and representation of collected data in such a way that helps in analyzing and making interpretations.

We learnt different ways of organizing data using frequency distribution table .

1. Constructing a frequency table.

2. Constructing a frequency table for large number of observations.

3. Constructing a relative frequency and relative frequency percentage table.

4. Constructing a cumulative frequency and cumulative frequency percentage table.

Importance of class boundaries (upper and lower boundaries ) were discussed in class and practice sums were given to them based on it.

Thereafter leaving apart the abstract idea of using pen and paper in math slots ,we resorted toÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â using ICT skills which will enable them to plot frequency table automatically after filling in theÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â data which ultimately will enhance their understanding of impact on the final result in caseÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â ofÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â variation in data and the rectified results will be visually evident.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â By resorting to ICT skills Learners were being true communicators as they found anotherÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â alternative way to express their understanding creatively.

There are a number of ways of representing data diagrammatically.
We discussed importance of following graphs and things need to be considered while drawing them on graph paper :
1. Column graphs
2. Histograms
3. Cumulative frequency curve
4. Frequency polygon
Worksheets containing different questions based on histograms and cumulative frequency curve were given to students to help them draw these graphs on graph papers.
Students were introduced with a new concept named ‘Normal distribution of data’.
The normal distribution is a symmetric distribution that is centered around a mean andÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â spreads out in both directions.Ãƒâ€šÃ‚Â In other words, most people or objects tend to center around a certain value, but there areÃƒâ€šÃ‚Â some higher values and some lower values.
A popular example is IQ, which is usually said to have a mean of 100.Obviously, there are very smart people and very not smart people. But a good percentage of people are somewhere close to the average.
