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.

Rounding to a significant figure

When I teach rounding to a significant figure, I ask the class to discuss in pairs or small groups a definition for the word significant.  It is a word that all the students have heard before but not all are able to define. After 2 or 3 minutes of conversation I ask the students to […]

Calculating Instantaneous Rates of Change

When calculating instantaneous rates of change students need to  visualise the properties of the gradient for a straight line graph.   I use the starter activity to see if they can match four graphs with their corresponding equations. The only clue is the direction and steepness of the red lines in relation to the blue line […]

Converting Between Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Fractions, decimals and percentages are ways of showing a proportion of something.  Any fraction can be written as a decimal, and any decimal can be written as a percentage.  In this blog I discuss how to use the place value table and equivalent fractions to illustrate how fractions, decimals and percentages are connected.
