Deriving y=mx + c

Deriving y=mx + c

This resource was used to bring together the students prior knowledge of plotting coordinates from a table of values, gradient and y intercept. the purpose of the task is to enable students to see the link between the equation of the line and the gradient and y intercept. this could be used as a starter for a more advanced class, or exercise for a lower ability class
