# Using Graphs to Solve Linear Equations

Students learn about using graphs to solve linear equations. Learning progresses from solving equations where the unknown appears on one side to using the intersection of two graphs to solve equations of the form 2x + 1 = x.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to use graphical methods to estimate a solution to an equation.
• Most students should be able to use linear graphs to estimate values of y for given values of x and vice versa.
• Some students should be able to use graphical methods to solve an equation in the form x = mx + c

#### Area of Compound Shapes

To find the area of compound shapes students need to understand what the word compound means.  Therefore, I ask students to discuss in pairs a definition for the word compound and to extend it to include the shapes below.  As a result of their learning in science students agree that a compound can be defined […]

#### Priorities for the Spring Term

At the start of the Spring Term these are three main priorities for me as the Head of Mathematics.

#### Mutually Exclusive Outcomes and Events

I teach mutually exclusive outcomes directly after students have encountered Venn diagrams. This is the fifth Year 8 Probability lesson.
