              Drawing Parabolas

              To practice drawing parabolas students learn how to create a table of results for a quadratic equation. They use these results as coordinates to plot the parabola. As learning progresses they use the parabola to model a real life problem.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to draw a parabola in the form y = x2 +a using a table of results.
              • Most students should be able to draw a parabola in the form y = x2 +ax + b using a table of results.
              • Some students should be able to draw and interpret the key properties of parabolic graphs.

              With schools around the United Kingdom closed to most students it is important every child has access to engaging maths lessons through distance learning.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
