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.

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. Here’s my starter activity which students discuss in pairs then present to me on mini-whiteboards. When the students have had time to discuss the matching pairs we talk […]
