# Constructing Loci and Regions

Students learn how to construct the locus of a region by considering loci about a point and line.  Learning is extended through the lesson by considering combinations of loci to identify certain regions.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to determine the locus around a point.
• Most students should be able to determine the locus about a line.
• Some students should be able to determine the locus about a point and line.

#### Equation of Straight Line Graphs

To find the equation of straight line graphs students need to calculate the gradient using two pairs of coordinates and the intercept which is the y value of where it crosses the vertical axis.  Examiner’s reports of past exam questions show students are more able to find the intercept of a straight line than they […]
