Tables of Functions

Students are introduced to linear functions in the form y = mx + c by breaking them down using function machines with input and outputs.  An interactive Excel file and Jigsaw puzzle are included with the lesson for additional consolidation and practice.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to use a function machine to determine an output of a linear function given its x value.
  • Most students should be able to create a table of results showing x and y for any linear function.
  • Some students should be able to derive a linear function given corresponding x and y values.

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. You can […]

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 […]
