Sketching Quadratic Graphs

In this mathematics lesson students learn about sketching quadratic graphs by identifying the y intercept, roots and turning point of the parabola.

 

As learning progresses students interchange between solving quadratics using factorisation, completing the square or the quadratic formula.

Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate and show the roots of a quadratic in a sketched diagram.
  • Most students should be able to sketch a quadratic graph to illustrate its turning point, roots and y-intercept value.
  • Some students should be able to use sketched graphs to determine the number of solutions to two or more simultaneous equations.

Surface Area of Cylinders

When I teach how to find the surface area of cylinders I like to add a constant level of challenge and enjoyment to the lesson.  Rather than repetitively calculating the surface area of a cylinder I introduce more complex cylindrical shapes.

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 […]
