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.

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 […]

Plotting and Interpreting Conversion Graphs

Plotting and interpreting conversion graphs requires linking together several mathematical techniques.  Recent U.K. examiner reports indicate there are several common misconceptions when plotting and interpreting conversion graphs.  These include: drawing non-linear scales on the x or y axis, using the incorrect units when converting between imperial and metric measurements, taking inaccurate readings from either axis not […]

Calculating the Volume of a Pyramid

When calculating the volume of a pyramid we can substitute the values of the length, width and perpendicular height into the formula V = 1/3 lwh.  In my experience this is often provided for the students with little explanation as to why a volume of a pyramid is exactly one third the volume of a […]
