Standard Form of Linear Functions - X and Y Intercept Scavenger Hunt (Set of 15)

Standard Form of Linear Functions - X and Y Intercept Scavenger Hunt (Set of 15)

This 15 poster scavenger hunt requires students to examine the characteristics of linear function graphs. Have students analyze a question and find the graph that matches the information. Students will: Determine the x and y-intercepts for a linear equation written in standard form. After finding the information, students will find the graph that matches their intercepts. Students will write down the correct letter on their answer sheet. Extension idea - Have students rewrite the equation in slope-intercept form. This is a great review of intercepts from standard form after instruction or before a test.

.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

.... is saving for (aka Linear relationships)

Christine is saving for a holiday. She is able to save some money per month. To get started Christine's grandparents are going to put in $500. This is the starting scenario - look at saving $50 per month and then two other options. Looking at the relationship between graph, table and equation of the data in the tables and investigate the link to gradient and y-intercept. A starting place for a unit on linear graphs (if students don't know gradient, teach it in context or skip that part)

Straight Line Real Life Examples

Straight Line Real Life Examples

A series of questions to practice learning about the straight line. Each one is based on a real life linear relationship, which pupils investigate. For a good class will take about an hour to do thoroughly Skills used: - drawing graph from data points - working out the gradient - working out the y-intercept - working out the equation of a line from the graph - using the equation to interpolate missing points Full solutions included

Algebra: Quadratic Graphs 2 - Gradients & Other Problems (+ resources)

Algebra: Quadratic Graphs 2 - Gradients & Other Problems (+ resources)

This is second of two whole lessons on teaching the various aspects of quadratic graphs containing the various aspects introduced with the new 9-1 GCSE syllabus. The first lesson being the introduction is important to go through before this lesson. They are available together as a bundle. This is a substantial PowerPoint, with starters, links to video's I use, Questions, Learning objectives, key words, loads of examples etc...

X and Y Intercept Matching Activity

X and Y Intercept Matching Activity

This matching activity is designed to be practice for students in finding the x- and y-intercepts of a graph and from an equation. Students will have to use critical thinking skills in order to match the three sets. Finding intercepts is a difficult task for students to attain. This practice will help students see the relation between an ordered pair, equation of a line and a graphed line.

Algebra: Solving Equation Bundle (3 lessons) - new 9-1 GCSE spec questions

Algebra: Solving Equation Bundle (3 lessons) - new 9-1 GCSE spec questions

Solving equations is such an important topic in maths and underpins so many other subjects especially for the higher tier. This is a three lesson series / sequence of lessons designed to give a really solid foundational understanding. 1. Introduction / foundation tier 2. Introduction / higher tier 3. Perimeter and other problems (inc. new spec) NOTE: Feel free to browse my shop for more excellent free and premium resources and as always please rate and feedback, thanks.

Algebra: Solving Equations 3 - Perimeter & Other Problems (+ questions involving new 9-1 GCSE spec)

Algebra: Solving Equations 3 - Perimeter & Other Problems (+ questions involving new 9-1 GCSE spec)

This is the third lesson on a 3 lesson series on Solving Equations and looks at forming and solving equations in different situations and comes with excellent examples, as well as a starter, key words, learning objectives and plenary. I have attached two sets of worksheets with exam questions. The first easier, looking at questions that would be appropriate for the foundation tier also, which is problems involving perimeter and angles. The second is new 9-1 tier questions, which are far harder involving volume, surface area and other problems. I have included both as some pupils and classes will need to tackle the easier questions and gain confidence before attempting the new level 8/9 questions.

Algebra: Solving Equations 2 - Higher Tier (+ worksheets)

Algebra: Solving Equations 2 - Higher Tier (+ worksheets)

This is the second lesson in the series on solving equations and is like an introduction to the higher tier work, with the first lesson being aimed at the foundation tier (I often start off with the first lesson for weaker groups doing the higher tier as well). It looks at more complicated equations with unknowns and numbers on both sides as well as fractions involved. It comes with a starter, key words, learning objectives, very clear teaching slides, worksheets with answers and plenary.

Algebra: Inequalities 4 - Shading Regions - Linear Graphs ( + superb worksheets)

Algebra: Inequalities 4 - Shading Regions - Linear Graphs ( + superb worksheets)

This is one of my favourite PowerPoints going through the very interesting topic of shading regions or showing inequalities in graph form. This is the second of 2 whole lessons!! The first lesson introduces the topic and looks at parallel lines and lines in the form x + y = ... the second lesson looks at "normal" linear graphs, which is much more challenging and tends to be only a higher topic. It comes with 5 worksheets for different ability classes and to help you differentiate for different ability students within your class. It also importantly comes with answers and blank graph sheets. This PPT contains lots of different examples with lots of custom animation, so it is very clear to help you teach this visual topic. This PowerPoint has been very effective at teaching this topic.
