              Finding the Equation of Straight Line Graphs

              The start of the lesson is used to review calculating the midpoints of line segments with different gradients.   The development phase builds on this by deriving the equation of a straight line graph.As learning progresses students use algebraic techniques to derive the equation of a line segment represented graphically and in the plenary, between two pairs of coordinates.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to derive the equation of a positive straight line graph in the form y = mx + c
              • Most students should be able to derive the equation of a straight line graph in the form y = mx + c
              • Some students should be able to derive the equation of a straight line graph using two pairs of coordinates.

              Literacy in Mathematics – Creating Problem Solvers

              Last year my school had a OFSTED trial inspection. Whilst the maths team recieved favourable feedback the inspectors noted a need for a focus on whole school literacy. Because of this I was asked to demonstrate how we develop student’s literacy in mathematics. Literacy in Mathematics By developing student’s literacy in mathematics we aim to […]

              Angles in Polygons

              There are two key learning points when solving problems with angles in polygons.  The first is to understand why all the exterior angles of a polygon have a sum of 360°.  The second is to understand the interior and exterior angles appear on the same straight line. Students can be told these two facts and […]
