Intro to Distance Time Graphs

Intro to Distance Time Graphs

This is a lesson designed to introduce pupils to distance time graphs. It was made for high ability year 8's but could be used more broadly than that. The worksheets in it are not mine (though they are lovely); they were made available by skillsheets.

Finding Slope Worksheet

Finding Slope Worksheet

Practice finding the slope of a line given two points with this 20 problem worksheet. (Answers included). Included is a simple explanation of slope. The best part? If you need more examples to show your students, or they just need extra practice, just press F9 (or just reload the worksheet) and the numbers will all change (answers will change as well). No need to look for more problems elsewhere. Print this out every day and never get the same worksheet twice! Your student will learn how to find slope in no time at all! Meanwhile, you won't need to spend time searching for more practice problems. Please rate my worksheets so I can keep improving them. If you have specific needs, feel free to contact me at straightaconsulting@gmail.com

Linear Graph Introduction

Linear Graph Introduction

The first lesson of the topic. Introducing Linear Graphs and y=mx+c for a high ability year 8 class. Sheets can be complied into a booklet to created a scaffold-ed resource to be used throughout the lesson. PowerPoint creates opportunities for AfL through the use of MWB. Each question has a timer attached to it that can be activated by clicking in presentation mode.

Personalised Polynomials (Lagrangian interpolation)

Personalised Polynomials (Lagrangian interpolation)

A presentation made for my year 10's on personalised polynomials. Builds from equation between 2 points to equation of curve between 3 points. Doesn't go beyond this to n points. To create their names in polynomials just use your favourite online interpolater (I like wolframs https://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=interpolating+polynomial+%7B1,10%7D,%7B2,3%7D,%7B4,7%7D,%7B8,0%7D&lk=3 )

Gradient and Intercept (Treasure Hunt)

Gradient and Intercept (Treasure Hunt)

This activity gives students practice at rearranging different formats of the equation of a straight-line into the form y = mx + c. They then determine the gradient and intercept of the line. Click --> https://tes.com/.../Treasure Hunts for similar style Treasure Hunts on 30 other topics. --- Note that unlike most Treasure Hunts, this one has the added feature that the answers give an encrypted clue. Deciphering this clue reveals where the treasure is hidden! A Treasure Hunt is a great activity which children love. They are ideal for revision, starters or plenaries. They are a really great way to get students to answer questions quickly and enjoy doing so. These question cards have been prepared in two sizes. The large cards can be pinned around around the classroom and used for a whole class activity; the smaller (loop cards) can be used for group work or by individuals – they are particularly helpful for one-to-one tutorials and during interventions.

Clue! Systems of Equations - Graphing, Substitution, Linear Combination, Word Problems

Clue! Systems of Equations - Graphing, Substitution, Linear Combination, Word Problems

This is a 4 clue practice based off the popular board game. Students will work through 4 clues to find the suspect, an accomplice, weapon and location. Students will use knowledge of solving systems of linear functions using three methods; substitution, linear combination (or addition) and graphing. Students will also use linear combination to solve four word problems. Students are given a cipher to turn their number answers into letters. Cut out both circles and spin the numbers to match the appropriate letter. Students are also provided a score sheet, just like the game, so they can mark off their final answer. Have them turn in their answers and work to see if they've found all the right information! Answer key included!

Christmas Star! Straight Line Graphing

Christmas Star! Straight Line Graphing

Students plot eight straight lines that miraculously turn into a Christmas Star :) Using y=mx+c, and then extending with a worksheet asking questions about parallel lines, and finding new equations. Plotted lines can also be used to talk about reflected functions (about x- or y-axis) and even inverse functions (2nd 4 lines are inverses of the 1st 4), as well as restricted domains (or inequalities for younger students).

Solve Systems of Linear Equations Mixed Review Problem Pass Activity

Solve Systems of Linear Equations Mixed Review Problem Pass Activity

Twelve problems include practice or review solving systems of linear equations using the graphing method, the substitution method and the linear combinations / elimination method. This activity includes a problem with “no solution” and another with “infinitely many solutions”. Students work with a partner while seated at their desks. They should write in their own notebook or on the blank Answer Sheet (included). At the same time the first pair of students is working on Problem 1, the second pair works on Problem 2, the third pair works on Problem 3, etc. At the teacher’s signal, all students pass their problem in a specific direction. The students who started with Problem 2 should now pass it to the students who started with Problem 1, the students who started with Problem 3 pass it to the students who started with Problem 2, etc. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problem to the last pair of students, or the teacher may prefer to deliver these each time. Students now flip over their new page to find the ANSWER to the problem they just finished. Students continue to work problems in order, pass problems and check their answers on the back of the next problem page until they have completed all problems included in the activity. This activity works well in the middle of a lesson while students are actively practicing a new skill or can be used as a review. The answer key is built into the activity so students check for accuracy themselves. Teacher Setup: Print single-sided copies and slide pages into plastic page protectors to keep problems and answers together. Put Problem 1 and ANSWER Problem 12 back-to-back in the same plastic page protector; put Problem 2 and ANSWER Problem 1 back-to-back in another plastic page protector, Problem 3 and ANSWER Problem 2 together, etc. Prepare 2 or more complete sets of the activity to have enough pages for each pair of students in the class. Keep complete sets in order. It is very important to hand out problems in numerical order so the page with the answer on the back follows its problem number. As you hand out problems in order, problem side up, tell each pair of students the direction they should pass their problem when finished. This direction may vary by row if you zig-zag or “snake” up and down the rows of desks. The first pair of students starting with Problem 1 should deliver their finished problems to the last pair of students, or you may prefer to deliver these each time. CCSS: Analyze and solve pairs of simultaneous linear equations: 8.EE.C.8, 8.EE.C.8a, 8.EE.C.8b CCSS: Solve systems of equations: HSA.REI.C5, HSA.REI.C.6 This purchase is for one teacher only.
