Solving Simultaneous Equations Graphically

The start of the lesson involves recognising the properties of linear functions both algebraically and graphically by identifying the gradient and intercept values.The development phase builds on this by teaching how to solve a pair of equations simultaneously using graphical methods.  As learning progresses students are challenged to solve equations in the form ax + by + c = 0.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to plot a linear function using two points.
  • Most students should be able to solve a pair of simultaneous equations with integer solutions graphically.
  • Some students should be able to generate and solve a pair of simultaneous equations graphically.

How to Simplify Surds

When learning how to simplify surds students need to understand the difference between a rational and irrational number. Rational numbers include integers and terminating and repeating decimals. They can be written as a fraction with both the numerator and denominator as integers. An irrational number is a number which, in its decimal form does not […]

Sharing an Amount to a Given Ratio

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.
