Speed Vs Time Graphs

Students learn how to plot and interpret speed vs. time graphs.  By considering the direction of the graph students understand how an acceleration and retardation correspond to a positive or negative gradient.  As learning progresses displacement is measured by calculating the area under the line.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to recognise a positive gradient as increasing velocity and a negative gradient as decreasing velocity.
  • Most students should be able to plot a velocity – time graph and calculate the area under the line to measure displacement.
  • Some students should be able to sketch a distance – time graph from a velocity time graph.

Comparing Datasets using the Mean and Range

In my experience, students, in general, find the concept of a mean straightforward to calculate and understand. However, the mean alone does not provide a complete picture of a set of data. To achieve this, a measure of spread is also required. The range is the simplest measure that can be used for this. Not […]

Solving Problems with Angles in Parallel Lines

Solving problems with angles in parallel lines is like solving a murder mystery.  One clue leads on to the next and the next until the murderer is found.  However, it doesn’t end there.  The detectives need to explain their reasoning in court using the relevant laws and procedures should the murderer plead not guilty.  If […]

Solving Two Step Equations using the Balance Method

An equation is when one expression, or term, is equal to another.  To solve an equation means to find the value of the variable (represented by a letter) that makes the two expressions equal.  There are two types of equations for secondary school mathematics, linear and none-linear.  In this blog I write about how I […]
