              Plotting Straight Line Graphs

              The lesson begins with reviewing substituting known values into various linear formulae. In the development phase of the lesson students learn how to create a table of results from a linear function in order to plot x and y values as coordinate pairs.  As learning progresses students begin to recognise the importance of the gradient and intercept values.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to plot linear functions in the form y = x + c.
              • All students should be able to plot linear functions in the form y = mx + c.
              • All students should be able to plot and solve graphically equations in the form y = mx + c.

              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 […]
