              Equation of Circles

              In this mathematics lesson students learn how to apply Pythagoras' Theorem to plot and derive the equation of circles on Cartesian axes.  Later, as learning progresses they using the graphs to solve quadratic and linear equations simultaneously.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to recognise the equation of a circle in the form x2 + y2 = r2.
              • Most students should be able to plot the equation of a circle.
              • Some students should be able to use the equation of a circle to solve simultaneous equations graphically.

              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 […]
