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

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 […]
