Algebraic Proof

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to construct a mathematical proof using algebraic notation and common number properties.  As learning progresses they are challenged to prove quadratic identities and consecutive terms.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use algebra to prove a linear relationship.
  • Most students should be able to expand the product of two or more brackets to prove a quadratic identity
  • Some students should be able to prove number properties through algebraic manipulation.

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
