Composite Functions

In this mathematics lesson students learn how to find the output of composite functions using the correct notation.  As learning progresses they are challenged to generalise outputs in terms of x.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use a function machine to break down the composite functions in the form gf(x).
  • Most students should be able to generate outputs from composite functions and realise that fg(x) does not give the same output as gf(x).
  • Some students should be able to use algebra to determine the input of a composite function when given the output.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

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 […]
