# Plotting Graphs on a Grid

Students learn how to complete a table of results and plot a straight line graph on a grid in the form y = mx + c .  As learning progress they begin to consider the effect a negative gradient has on the direction of the line.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to plot a straight-line graph in the form y = x ± c
• Most students should be able to plot a straight-line graph in the form y = mx + c
• Some students should be able to recognise, sketch and produce graphs of linear functions.
