# Kinematics Formulae

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to apply and manipulate various kinematics formulae to solve and model problems involving motion.  As learning progresses they are challenged to combine multiple formulae to solve a single problem.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to sketch a diagram to ascertain the key variables of motion.
• Most students should be able to identify and apply the correct kinematic formula to solve problems involving motion.
• Some students should be able to derive the three kinematic formulae from first principals.

#### Teaching Mathematics for a Growth Mindset

Inspiring students to enjoy maths and feel the success that comes with attempting a difficult challenge is why I teach.  The feeling of success is addictive.  The more students experience it the more they want it and the further out of their comfort zone they are willing to go to get more of it.  Teaching […]

#### 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 […]

#### Arithmetic and Geometric Sequences

Students learn how to generate and describe arithmetic and geometric sequences on a  position-to-term basis.  Learning progresses from plotting and reading coordinates in the first quadrant to describing geometric sequences using the nth term. This unit takes place in Term 4 of Year 10 and is followed by the equations of straight line graphs. Arithmetic […]
