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.

Practical Tips for Using Mini-Whiteboards in a Mathematics Lesson

In this blog I will share some practical tips for using mini-whiteboards in a mathematics lesson.  I use mini-whiteboards nearly every lesson because they help the students show me the progress they are making.  When I understand what the misconceptions are I am able to address them in subsequent examples as part of my feedback.  […]

Showing Progress during a Mathematics Lesson

Demonstrating student progression during a mathematics lesson is about understanding the learning objective and breaking that down into explicit success criteria. Using Success Criteria Take, for example, a lesson on calculating the area of compound rectilinear shapes. The intended learning objective was written on the main whiteboard. Success criteria were used to break down the individual […]
