              Gradient of Straight Line Graphs

              The start of the lesson reviews calculating the mid-point for line segments with different gradients.  The development phase builds on this by calculating the gradient of a line segment as a measure of its rate of change.As learning progresses students calculate the gradients between two coordinate pairs.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a positive gradient of a linear function using the graph.
              • Most students should be able to calculate a gradient of a line segment between two coordinate pairs.
              • Some students should be able to calculate the gradient of a function in a real life context.
