Plotting Linear Inequalities

Students learn how to plot and calculate linear inequalities on a Cartesian axes.  As learning progresses they are challenged to identify regions on a grid using sets.The start of lesson reminds students about the gradient and intercept properties of linear functions.   The plenary challenges students to identify and describe a set of inequalities around a specific region.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot and describe an inequality in the form y = a, x = a.
  • Most students should be able to plot a linear equality on Cartesian axes.
  • Some students should be able to plot and describe linear inequalities on Cartesian axes.

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 […]
