              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.

              Area of Compound Shapes

              To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

              Priorities for the Spring Term

              At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

              Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

              I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
