The website has some really nice resources for teachers.

One of these is the worksheet on cumulative frequency that you can display on the whiteboard easily, so that you can go through a couple of examples with the class to build their confidence.

Here is a worksheet that I put together for my Year 9 class today to speed up the lesson.
