Interpreting Straight Line Graphs

Students learn about interpreting straight line graphs by finding the gradient and intercept values.  As learning progresses they find the equation of linear graphs with negative and fractional gradients and intercepts.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to find the gradient of a straight-line graph with an intercept of zero.
  • Most students should be able to find the gradient and intercept of a straight-line graph.
  • Some students should be able to calculate and interpret gradients and intercepts of graphs of linear equations.

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

There are three common methods for sharing an amount to a given ratio.  Depending on the age group and ability range I am teaching I would choose one approach over the other two. The three methods are: Using fractions Unitary method Using a table In this blog I will demonstrate each of the three methods […]

Plotting Scatter Graphs and Understanding Correlation

To introduce plotting scatter graphs and understanding correlation I ask students to think about the relationships between different variables and to describe how they might be related. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]

Plotting Quadratic Graphs on Cartesian Axes

In recent examiner reports it is noted how important it is for students to understand the properties of a parabola  when plotting quadratic graphs on Cartesian axes.  Students who have a secure understanding of parabolas can use them to correct miscalculated values in their table of results and are more likely to attain full marks […]
